Molecular phylogeny and classification of the lobose amoebae.
TLDR
The growing number of species that were difficult to recognize emphasized the need to clarify the criteria of species identification among amoebae prior to any attempt to create a comprehensive system, mainly because of the difficulties in defining genera and distinguishing species. Expand
Morphology, phylogeny, and ecology of the aphelids (Aphelidea, Opisthokonta) and proposal for the new superphylum Opisthosporidia
TLDR
This review reorganizes the taxonomy of ARM-clade, and establishes a new superphylum the Opisthosporidia with three phyla: Aphelida phyl. Expand
Barcoding amoebae: comparison of SSU, ITS and COI genes as tools for molecular identification of naked lobose amoebae.
TLDR
COI may be a good candidate for DNA barcoding of amoebae, but further studies are necessary to confirm the accurateness of the COI gene as a barcode in other gymnamoEBae, and to understand the taxonomic meaning of COI variations. Expand
Correct identification of species makes the amoebozoan rRNA tree congruent with morphology for the order Leptomyxida Page 1987; with description of Acramoeba dendroida n. g., n. sp., originally
TLDR
Correcting misidentifications of gymnamoebae improves the congruence between morphological diversity of Amoebozoa and their rRNA-based phylogenies, both for Leptomyxida and for the Acramoeba part of the tree. Expand
Transfer of the Members of the Genus Brachiola (Microsporidia) to the Genus Anncaliia Based on Ultrastructural and Molecular Data
TLDR
The combination of molecular and morphological data provided clear evidence that these microsporidia belong to the same genus and therefore, warranted emendation of the genus Anncaliia and establishments of the following new combinations. Expand
Phylogeny of lobose amoebae based on actin and small‐subunit ribosomal RNA genes
TLDR
Actin and SSU rRNA phylogenies distinguish two well-defined clades of amoebae, the “Gymnamoebia sensu stricto” and the Archamoebae (pelobionts+entamoebids), and one weakly supported and ill-resolved group comprising some naked, lobose amoEBae and the Mycetozoa. Expand
Establishment of the new genus Paranosema based on the ultrastructure and molecular phylogeny of the type species Paranosema grylli Gen. Nov., Comb. Nov. (Sokolova, Selezniov, Dolgikh, Issi 1994),
TLDR
Comparative phylogenetic analysis using rDNA shows Nosema grylli to be closely related to another orthopteran microsporidian, Nosema locustae, and to Nosema whitei from the confused flour beetle, Tribolium confusum, which is a sister taxon to these three Nosema species. Expand
Phylogeny, evolution, and taxonomy of vannellid amoebae.
TLDR
A new genus Ripella is established, with distinct morphology and sequence signatures for Vannella platypodia and morphologically similar species that form a clearly separate clade, very distant from other Vannellidae. Expand
Phylogeny of lobose amoebae based on actin and small-subunit ribosomal RNA genes.
TLDR
Actin and SSU rRNA phylogenies distinguish two well-defined clades of amoebae, the "Gymnamoebia sensu stricto" and the Archamoebae (pelobionts + entamoebids) and one weakly supported and ill-resolved group comprising some naked, lobose amoEBae and the Mycetozoa. Expand
