Figure S1. ML tree inferred from concetaned SSU rDNA-rbcL-psbC sequences illustrating the relationship among Tenuicylindrus, Leptocylindrus species and other groups. Bolidomonas pacifica was included as outgroup. Bootstrap values have been generated with 1,000 replicates.
Figure S2. ML tree inferred from the nuclear SSU rDNA sequences of Tenuicylindrus, Leptocylindrus, other diatom genera and Bolidomonas pacifica as outgroup.
Figure S3. ML tree inferred from the rbcL gene of Tenuicylindrus, Leptocylindrus, other diatom genera and Bolidomonas pacifica as outgroup.
Figure S4. ML tree inferred from the psbC gene of Tenuicylindrus, Leptocylindrus, other diatom genera and Bolidomonas pacifica as outgroup.
Table S1. Strains used in the analysis. All strains are from the Gulf of Naples, except CCMP 1856, which was isolated by P. Hargraves from the Gulf of Mexico.
Table S2. Oligonucleotide primers used to amplify and sequence nuclear rDNA regions (including SSU, partial LSU, 5.8S rDNA, and ITS), plastid SSU rDNA, rbcL, and psbC fragments from Leptocylindrus.
Table S3. Light microscope morphometric characters in Leptocylindrus and Tenuicylindrus species.
Table S4. Electron microscope morphometric characters in Leptocylindrus species and Tenuicylindrus belgicus. All information is from culture material.
Table S5. DNA markers used in this study, their alignment lengths, and variable parsimony informative positions.
Table S6. Base composition and estimated base substitution models as inferred with Modeltest (Posada and Crandall 2001) for each of the alignments used in this study (UA: unalignable data).
Table S7. DNA sequence dissimilarities within the genus and/or to the closest genus.
