Stramenopiles, with giant kelp and potato pathogens, now join alveolates and rhizaria (even though they have no chlorophyll c) as what's often abbreviated as SAR.
Further resolution within different stramenopile lineages are supported by other elements of the flagellar apparatus including filaments on the tripartite hairs, flagellar R1 roots, and transitional helices.
Some organisms were detected in a number of samples and may have a specific role in ESD lesion development and biofouling, including the nematode Geomonhystera disjuncta, various barnacles, stramenopiles, and bryozoans.
In addition, OTUs classified as fungi or stramenopiles, as well the "no hit" category, were reported separately when discussing the proportion of taxa.
Other identified species, generally considered nonpathogenic or of indeterminate significance, were intestinal protozoans or stramenopiles: Blastocystis hominis, Chilomastix mesnilii, Dientamoeba fragilis, Endolimax nana, Entamoeba coli, Entamoeba hartmanii, and lodomoeba butchlii.

Regardless of the appealing and instructive nature of their life cycles, these brown algae are not only marine organisms but Stramenopiles (cf.

Lobsters with shell disease also show the presence of a diverse eukaryotic community of epibionts in lesions, including the bacterivorous nematode Geomonhystera disjuncta, barnacles, stramenopiles, and bryozoans.
