    The Pyrocystis fusiformis belongs to the Eukaryota,
    bacteria are by definition Prokaryotes

    For better or worse, in most people’s minds, if not plant, animal or fungus, then bacteria. Some people don’t even get fungus.

    Of course, the definition of Protista is kind of like the coffee can everyone has in their shop labeled “stuff”. It’s a handy place to put all the weird stuff you don’t want to bother sorting.

    These are nit bacteria. Calling this algae, which they where supposed to be a few years back, is way more accurate then bacteria. Bacteria have no nucleus, these guys do have one and they are green so: algae!
