plant ed folks.

i thought that the latest plant taxonomic nomenclature used the suffix
phyta for plantish phyla (including protists). so i was surprised that
vodopich & moore lab manual identifies dinoflagellata. the companion
text by raven & johnson names them pyrrhophyta. raven says dinophyta in
biol of plants. which is the more standard usage and why?

thanks for any help you offer.
