1. Division Euglenophyta (euglenoids, Euglena)
This biological division contains the algal species Euglena and over 1,000 species of related algae ; they are all unicellular (single-celled) and are mainly found in freshwater environments. They are all photosynthetic (though some are secondary heterotroph s) and they all contain chlorophyll s a and b. A unique feature of this division is that they store the energy they produce from photosynthesis as paramylum, an unusual carbohydrate . Members of this division have a contractile vacuole and a single flagellum .
