(order)*

1Dp66E-1Unicellular, binary fission by constriction, cells sticks shaped 0.6–0.8  m wide and 1.5–2  m long, unsheathed.I
(Chroococcales)

2Dp86EFilamentous, binary fission in one plane by septum formation, no cell differentiation, ensheathed, cells barrel or cylindrical shaped 1.5–2.5  m long and 1.0–1.5  m wide. III
(Oscillatoriales)

10Dp66EFilamentous, binary fission in one plane by septum formation, cells round shaped 3.0–3.5  m in diameter and are able to differentiate hormogonia and intercalary heterocysts and akinetes. Vegetative trichomes have their own sheaths and are joined by colonial mucus. IV
(Nostocales)
