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
I can't find any of these things (indeed any alveolates at all) in CoL... tried searching for about 10 genus names and failed every time. GBIF 109 came from Dinophyta in CoL 2011. So maybe this is a problem with CoL?

Thanks Jonathan, this is the right place.
I need to look into details again a bit longer, but Histioneis Stein, 1883 can be found here
http://www.gbif.org/species/8113914

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:
http://www.gbif.org/species/7864388

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.

Dinoflagellates supposed to be in present CoL Phylum Miozoa, but they are all gone with departure of AlgaeBase in 2013. That's why we are missing the higher tree and the families & genera are placed in various groups now

The phylum Myzozoa (Miozoa) incl Dinophyceae is now added to the algae classification patch we use: gbif/algae@afccc62
