Taxonomic remark "Group" (treated in IRMNG as a phylum) established by Evitt (1963) for organic-walled microfossils with a central cavity, not demonstrably related to known groups e.g. dinoflagellates; probably represents cysts of unicellular algae/protists in the main along with perhaps "eggs, cysts, and mature tests of assorted one celled and higher organisms" (Evitt, 1963), with a long geological history. According to convention and in line with Evitt's original proposal, acritarchs are treated according to the botanical nomenclatural Code (ICNafp). [details]
