Chromista

chromistchromist algae
Chlorophyll c is a form of chlorophyll found in certain marine algae, including the photosynthetic Chromista (e.g. diatoms, brown algae) and dinoflagellates.
It includes all algae whose chloroplasts contain chlorophylls a and c, as well as various colorless forms that are closely related to them.

Brown algae

Chlorophyll c is a form of chlorophyll found in certain marine algae, including the photosynthetic Chromista (e.g. diatoms, brown algae) and dinoflagellates.
Their plastids also contain chlorophyll c and carotenoids (the most widespread of those being fucoxanthin).

Chlorophyll a

chlorophyll ''achlorophyll-aa
It has a blue-greenish color and is an accessory pigment, particularly significant in its absorption of light in the 447-452 nm wavelength region, Like chlorophyll a and chlorophyll b, it helps the organism gather light and passes a quanta of excitation energy through the light harvesting antennae to the photosynthetic reaction centre.
