In contrast the Rhodophyta and Chromophyta are members of the Protista which is represented by paraphyletic lines of descent that cannot be definitively placed in a phylogenetic context using traditional methods of comparative morphology, physiology, or biochemistry.
The Chromophyta are traditionally defined by 10 major classes which can be differentiated on the basis of ultrastructure and plastid characteristics (Green et al.
huxleyi) and dinoflagellates (as represented by Prorocentrum micans) to be independent eukaryotic lines of evolution unrelated to each other or the Chromophyta.
