What happened to Dinophyta? #12
Not sure if this is the place to ask about this, but...
I can't find either Dinophyta=Dinoflagelleta=Dinokaryota or Dinophyceae. In 2013 GBIF they were 109 and 201 respectively. They may have disintegrated, with their families put directly under Chromista, as suggested by Gymnodiniaceae http://www.gbif.org/species/7476073 .
Here's a sample genus from this group in IRMNG: http://www.irmng.org/aphia.php?p=taxdetails&id=1324911
Thanks Jonathan, this is the right place.
It is classified under Dinophysiaceae which might be wrong and it also lacks the higher tree, which looks like we miss a chunk of the hierarchy in CoL:
Catalogue of Life drastically changed the higher classification so this had some serious impact on our backbone, especially Chromista which has now lots of groups formerly in Protozoa. We also added an Algae classification ourselves to replace the gap Algaebase created.
