 Blue-greens are very primitive organisms that are not really algae. They photosynthesize like algae, but they are actually bacteria. Now they are referred to as “Cyanobacteria” to acknowledge that they are bacteria. They cannot be included in Plant kingdom since they show characteristics of kingdom Monera and not Plantae. They are prokaryotic cells.
