From editor or global species database
Diagnosis Phagotrophic photosynthetic eukaryovorous euglenoids with no rod/vane feeding apparatus; simple reservoir-associated feeding pocket supported by a bundle of four rows of close-spaced microtubules, not just one row as in Euglenophycidae; non-gliding swimmers in the water column. Etymol: rapax L. seizing, grasping, as the only predatory Euglenophyceae [details]

Editor's comment Homologies of the Rapaza FA and the MTR pockets of Euglenophycidae (Shin et al. 2002) compared with other Euglenozoa were previously partially misinterpreted and will present a new synthesis elsewhere. [details]
