- Hacrobia (the "HC" refers to Haptophyta and Cryptophyta, the two major members of this group)
- SAR supergroup
This description includes all Bikonts that are not excavates. It is also referred to as Diaphoretickes or the SAR/HA Supergroup. It is not to be confused with Corticata, which was part of a different classification scheme that excluded Rhizaria from the SAR supergroup.
It was previously described as the sum of Archaeplastida, Rhizaria, and chromalveolates. However, this description is obsolete, largely due to the discovery that chromalveolata was not monophyletic.
