Magnification: x32,000. (Courtesy of B. R. ) 46 John D. Dodge intact, giving what Taylor (1967a) has called semiopen division. Further extension of the nucleus is associated with anaphase separation of the chromatids, but no kinetochores have been observed. For the sake of subsequent discussion the nuclear division of the two remaining algal groups should be briefly mentioned (no details are available for the Eustigmatophyceae as yet).
Some types of chloroplasts. 2. The Phytoflagellates: Fine Structure and Phylogeny 41 A slight variation on the above type of chloroplast structure unites most of the pigmented members of the Dinophyceae and Euglenophyceae. In these groups the chloroplast envelope consists of three membranes, the outer one of which (contrary to what is reported in Bisalputra, 1974, p. 137) probably does not consist of endoplasmic reticulum. Internally these plastids consist of lamellae made up of three thylakoids which are usually more closely appressed than in the chrysophyte groups (Figure 10).
More recent studies of mitosis have shown that there are connections between the microtubules which lie in the cytoplasmic channels and dividing chromosomes which are attached to depressions in the walls of these channels (Oakely and Dodge, 1974b, 1977; Cachon and Cachon, 1974) (Figure 15). Mitosis in the parasitic dinoflagellate Haplozoon appears to follow the same lines as in free-living organisms (Siebert and West, 1974), as also does that in the desmokont section of the class (Prorocentrales), for microtubule-containing channels have been found in two members, Prorocentrum triestinum (Dodge and Bibby, 1973) and P.
