The main distinctions are based upon the Pigment systems - the inclusion or not of three chlorophylls, special carotenoids and phycobilins; the composition of the cellulosic Cell wall (Nay, Yay, or double - and with or without algin); and the nature of reserve materials (be they starch, paramylum and fats, starch and oils, leucosin and oils, or laminarin and fats);
