Pleurochrysis carterae
Scientific classification
Kingdom: Chromalveolata
Phylum: Haptophyta
Class: Prymnesiophyceae
Order: Isochrysidales
Family: Pleurochrysidae
Genus: Pleurochrysis
Species: P. carterae

Pleurochrysis carterae is a unicellular coccolithophorid alga that has the ability to calcify subcellularly. They produce calcified scales, known as coccoliths, which are deposited on the surface of the cell resulting in the formation of a coccosphere. Pleurochrysis carterae produce heterococcoliths which are composed of crystal units of variable shapes and sizes.
