Extract

This study of the genus Pterosperma followed on from our work on the genus Halosphaera (Parke & Adams, 1961; Parke & Hartog-Adams, 1965; Boalch & Mommaerts, 1969) since while studying the latter we found abundant pterospermatacean material. In recent books on algae the family Pterospermataceae Ostenfeld (1902) is placed in the class Chrysophyceae (Papenfuss, 1955; Bourrelly, 1957, 1968; Fott, 1959, 1971; Prescott, 1969). The family, however, rightfully belongs in the class Prasinophyceae (Parke in Parke & Dixon, 1964, 1968; Christensen, 1966) in the order Pterospermatales (Parke & Green in Parke & Dixon, 1976).
