Entocladia viridis, from Scagel (1966).

Belongs within: Chlorophyta.
Contains: Trebouxiophyceae, Volvocales, Chlorococcales, Oedogoniophyceae, Bryopsidales, Ulvales, Ulotrichales, Trentepohliales, Dasycladales, Cladophoraceae, Siphonocladales.

The Tetraphytae are a clade of green algae in which cytokinesis involves a phycoplast, a system of microtubules that is oriented parallel to the plane of cell division.

Characters (from Cavalier-Smith 1998): Cruciate microtubular roots without MLS; telophase spindle collapses; cytokinesis involves a phycoplast.
