Zazzle, are you saying that all phytoplankton look the SAME to you?!
I believe that hitting a girl is wrong, so I’m going to have to insist that you do it yourself for that comment.
Thanks, I’m renaming the coccolithophorid section of my Hacrobia chapter to that now. Let’s see if teh boss ever notices…

Ouch, that’s a beautiful taxonomic fail!
Taxonomic Fail Index = 130 — I think we have a winner here!
To be fair, the “other products you may be interested in” all have correct pictures.
AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH! They’re in completely different fucking SUPERGROUPS!
My brain hurts. Poor Ehux is NOT deadly, last I checked! >.<
Crabe, how did you calculate the divergence time? Just curious, because the phylogenetic placement of these buggers is still not entirely clear…
(btw, the epitome of eukaryotic taxon fail is the tradition of using pictures of Chaos or Amoeba proteus in fear mongering articles about Naegleria fowlerii…)
I used the Myrmecos blog method: I’ve searched for haptophyta and alveolata in timetree of life (http://www.timetree.org/index.php) and divided it by the time of divergence of genus Homo vs Pan.
Wow. That’s like having a photo of a shelf fungus on a t-shirt and underneath is printed ‘I Love Kittens’
I might actually buy THAT shirt
You are right…it’s too cool…
