Extended Data Figure 9

Diagrams of whole cells and eyespots are shown for all dinoflagellates for which both ultrastructural descriptions and 18S and 28S ribosomal DNA sequences have been published. Eyespot diagrams highlight plastid-like structures (crimson), as well as mitochondria (dark blue), lens-like vesicles (light blue), lipid droplets (red dots), and crystalline layers (grey dashes). The phylogenetic tree was inferred from a 2,331-nucleotide alignment of concatenated 18S and 28S ribosomal DNA sequences across 36 genera; statistical support was evaluated with 500 bootstraps using maximum likelihood and 10,000 generations of Bayesian analysis. Bootstrap values above 60% are shown. For some taxa, 18S and 28S ribosomal sequences were concatenated from different species within the genus. Only the genus is shown for these taxa.
