I don't get it, are they flagellates or algae? Surely they can't be both.


Apparently they really are both. see http://www.pnas.org/cgi/content/full/103/5/1353 for an interesting paper on the effect of flagella on nutrient uptake. In this paper, the illumination level (that supports phototrophy) is carefully documented for the experiments.
