      "stramen" means flagellum in Latin, and "pilos" means hair; hence, stramenopilans

      Also… I need one biological and one commercial reason why diatoms are important?

      Here are hints about the commercial side of diatoms :

      1) Nobel+Dynamite

      2) Oil prospection

      3) Filtration

      Cheers,

      There there is the scouring powder called Bon Ami and the use of diatomaceous frustules to discourage tiny garden pests.
