Synura petersenii belongs to the class Synurophyceae. This class has about 150 species of silica-scaled algae (Andersen and Preisig 2002a)

Synura petersenii . The 91.5 kb chloroplast genome of this alga has been partially characterized (Wee et al. 1993). This oligotrophic, freshwater alga is a nuisance species in that it produces volatile organic compounds that impart an unpleasant taste and odor to drinking water (Watson et al. 2001).
