Prymnesiophytes
The haptophytes, classified either as the Prymnesiophyta or Haptophyta, are a division of algae.
The term "Haptophyceae" is sometimes used. This ending implies classification at a lower level. However, although the phylogenetics of this group has become much more understood in recent years, there remains some dispute over which taxon level is most appropriate.

Plant Life: Haptophytes
Haptophytes The algal phylum Prymnesiophyta, or Haptophyta, is a monophyletic taxon that contains two hundred to three hundred extant species that are 4-40 microns in size. The phylum Haptophyta is divided into two subclasses, the Prymnesiophycidae and Pavlovophycidae, that differ significantly from one another.

DOE Joint Genome Institute in the News: DOE JGI Science Highlights: Marine Metagenomics Elucidate Role in Global Carbon Cycle
Marine eukaryotes such as diatoms and phytoplankton sequester as much as 50 billion tons or gigatons of carbon annually, but very little is known about the tiny microorganisms that primarily make up this group, and their role in the global carbon cycle. To help answer this question, a team led by DOE JGI collaborator Alexandra Worden of the Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute and including DOE JGI’s Susannah Tringe and Tanja Woyke conducted a metagenomic analysis of a particular group of uncultured phytoplankton known as pico-Prymnesiophytes.

Oceanic Defense: 'Black Box' Plankton Found to Have Huge Role in Ocean Carbon Fixation
ScienceDaily — Scientists at the University of Warwick and the National Oceanography Centre in Southampton have opened "the black box" of eukaryotic phytoplankton and discovered that they actually account for almost half the ocean's carbon fixation by phytoplankton. Carbon fixation by phytoplankton in the open ocean plays a key role in the global carbon cycle but is not fully understood.
