Plants+HC+SAR megagroup

  (Redirected from Diaphoretickes)

The Archaeplastida+HC+SAR megagroup (Archaeplastida comprising the red algae, the green algae, and the land plants) is a group of eukaryotes proposed by Burki et al. (2008).[1]

Plants+HC+SAR megagroup
Scientific classification e
Domain: Eukaryota
(unranked): Diaphoretickes
unranked groups

It includes:

This description includes all Bikonts that are not excavates and Hemimastigophora. It is also referred to as Diaphoretickes (/ˌdəfəˈrɛtɪkz/) or the SAR/HA Supergroup, or the Corticata with Rhizaria now included in the SAR supergroup.[2]

It was previously described as the sum of Archaeplastida, Rhizaria, and chromalveolates.[3] However, this description is obsolete, largely due to the discovery that chromalveolata was not monophyletic.

It includes most of the species engaging in photosynthesis, except for the Euglenozoa and Cyanobacteria.
