Chlorophyta or Prasinophyta is a taxon of green algae informally called chlorophytes.
The green algae (singular: green alga) are a large, informal grouping of algae consisting of the Chlorophyta and Charophyta/Streptophyta, which are now placed in separate divisions, as well as the potentially more basal Mesostigmatophyceae, Chlorokybophyceae and Spirotaenia.

Trentepohlia (alga)

TrentepohliaTrentepohlia Trentepohlia annulata
Others, such as Trentepohlia species, live attached to rocks or woody parts of trees.
Trentepohlia is a genus of filamentous chlorophyte green algae in the family Trentepohliaceae, living free on terrestrial supports such as tree trunks and wet rocks or symbiotically in lichens.

Viridiplantae

green plantsChloroplastidagreen plant
In older classification systems, it refers to a highly paraphyletic group of all the green algae within the green plants (Viridiplantae) and thus includes about 7,000 species of mostly aquatic photosynthetic eukaryotic organisms.
The Viridiplantae are made up of two clades: Chlorophyta and Streptophyta as well as the basal Mesostigmatophyceae and Chlorokybophyceae.

Trebouxiophyceae

With the exception of Palmophyllophyceae, Trebouxiophyceae, Ulvophyceae and Chlorophyceae, which show various degrees of multicellularity, all the Chlorophyta lineages are unicellular.
The Trebouxiophyceae are a class of green algae, in the division Chlorophyta.

Monostroma kuroshiense

Monostroma kuroshiense, an edible green alga cultivated worldwide and most expensive among green algae, belongs to this group.
Monostroma kuroshiense, a green alga in the division Chlorophyta, is a green seaweed endemic to Kuroshio Coast of Japan.

Marine biology

marinemarine biologistmarine life
While most species live in freshwater habitats and a large number in marine habitats, other species are adapted to a wide range of land environments.
Phytoplankton are categorized into cyanobacteria (also called blue-green algae/bacteria), various types of algae (red, green, brown, and yellow-green), diatoms, dinoflagellates, euglenoids, coccolithophorids, cryptomonads, chrysophytes, chlorophytes, prasinophytes, and silicoflagellates.

Palmophyllophyceae

With the exception of Palmophyllophyceae, Trebouxiophyceae, Ulvophyceae and Chlorophyceae, which show various degrees of multicellularity, all the Chlorophyta lineages are unicellular.
The Palmophyllophyceae are a proposed basal Chlorophyte clade consisting of the Palmophyllales and Prasinococcales.

Pyramimonadales

Pyramimonadales are an order of green algae in the Chlorophyta.

Lichen

Others form symbiotic relationships with fungi to form lichens, but the majority of species are free-living.
In the majority of lichens the photobiont is a green alga (Chlorophyta) or a cyanobacterium.

Prasinophyceae

Chlorophyta or Prasinophyta is a taxon of green algae informally called chlorophytes.
Tetraphytina) or chlorophyta are a class of unicellular green algae.

Charophyta

charophytecharophytesCharophyceae
In newer classifications, it refers to the sister of the streptophytes/charophytes.
The sister group of the Charophytes are the Chlorophyta.

Streptophyta

Streptophyte
In newer classifications, it refers to the sister of the streptophytes/charophytes.
The composition of the clade varies considerably between authors, but the definition employed here includes land plants and all green algae except the Chlorophyta and possibly the more basal Mesostigmatophyceae, Chlorokybophyceae, and Spirotaenia.

Chlorococcales

chlorococcoidcoccoid
However, coccoid green algae are currently placed in several orders of Chlorophyceae, Trebouxiophyceae, Ulvophyceae (e.g., Chlorocystis) and Prasinophyceae within the division Chlorophyta, or in the division Charophyta (e.g., Chlorokybales, Desmidiales).

Mamiellophyceae

Mamiellophyceae is a class of green algae in the division Chlorophyta.

Palmophyllales

The Palmophyllales are a deep-branching order of thalloid green alga, possibly forming a sister group to the Chlorophyta.

Zoid

Characteristics used for the classification of Chlorophyta are: type of zoid, mitosis (karyokynesis), cytokinesis, organization level, life cycle, type of gametes, cell wall polysaccharides and more recently genetic data.

Bryopsidophyceae

Bryopsidophyceae is an unaccepted class of chlorophyte green algae.

Pleurastrophyceae

In taxonomy, the Pleurastrophyceae are a class of green algae, in the division Chlorophyta.

Chlorodendrales

Chlorodendrophyceae
The analyses showed four independent prasinophyte groups, in which these lineages represented the earliest divergences among the Chlorophyta.

Nephroselmidaceae

NephroselmidophyceaeNephrophyceae
Nephroselmidaceae is a family of green algae, the only family in the order Nephroselmidales and the class Nephrophyceae within the division Chlorophyta.

Pedinophyceae

Pedinophyceae is a class of green algae in the division Chlorophyta.

Picocystis

Picocystis salinarumPicocystophyceae
It is placed within its own class, Picocystophyceae in the division Chlorophyta.
