dinoflagelados
Scope note: EUCARIOTAS flagelados que se encuentran principalmente en los océanos. Se caracterizan por la presencia de flagelos transversos y longitudinales que imprimen al organismo un movimiento rotatorio al desplazarse por el agua. En el pasado, los Dinoflagellida se consideraban miembros de la clase Phytomastigophorea, dentro del antiguo paradigma de los cinco reinos.
