a Only the conserved genes that are missing in one or more chloroplast genomes are indicated. Plus and minus signs denote the presence and absence of genes, respectively.

b Pseudogenes.

c Chaetosphaeridium tufA could be a pseudogene because its sequence is highly divergent from those of other green plants.
