Mesostigmatophyceae

The Mesostigmatophyceae are a class of basal green algae found in freshwater[1][2][3] originally containing two species in a single genus, Mesostigma.[4] Now, a clade containing Chlorokybus and Spirotaenia has been added.[5][6][7][8][9].[10] The Mesostigmatophyceae are either placed as sister to all other green algae, or more conventionally as sister to all Streptophyta.[11][12][13]
