LSU and SSU data agree in supporting the monophyly of Bilateria, Cnidaria, Ctenophora, and Metazoa, which reveals phylogenetic structure in a data set with limited taxon sampling.
Phylogeny of the "forgotten" cellular slime mold, Fonticula alba, reveals a key evolutionary branch within Opisthokonta.
The data indicate that multicellularity in Fonticula evolved independent of that found in the fungal and animal radiations, and a new name is proposed for this well-supported clade, Nucletmycea, incorporating Nuclearia,Fonticula, and Fungi.

P phylogenetic trees based on the small subunit ribosomal RNA gene (SSU) that include 21 protostelids along with publicly available sequences from a wide variety of amoebae and other eukaryotes are provided, demonstrating that the paradigms for understanding both nonfruiting and sporulating amoEBae must be integrated.
MITOCHONDRIAL DNA SEQUENCE EVIDENCE SUPPORTING THE RECOGNITION OF TWO SUBSPECIES OR SPECIES OF THE FLORIDA SPINY LOBSTER PANULIRUS ARGUS
Phylogenetic analyses of 16S sequence data reveal 2 distinct clades of P. argus, a clade consisting of Caribbean populations and a second clade of samples from Brazil, which may represent a complex of 2 species or subspecies.

It is shown that phylogenomics of phylogenetically ‘nomadic’ species can elucidate key questions in eukaryote evolution and establish Breviata as a deep-branching unikont, and remnants of mitochondria have been detected in all putatively deep-BRanching amitochondriate organisms.
Aggregative Multicellularity Evolved Independently in the Eukaryotic Supergroup Rhizaria

We sequenced small-subunit ribosomal RNA genes (16S-like rDNAs) of 10 species belonging to the genera Entamoeba and Endolimax. This study was undertaken to (1) resolve the relationships among the…
Mitochondrial DNA variation and population structure in the spiny lobster Panulirus argus
Adult spiny lobsters (Panulirus argus) were collected from nine locations throughout the tropical and subtropical northwest Atlantic Ocean and examined for mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) variation, finding high levels of gene flow among populations of P. argus resulting from an extended planktonic larval stage and strong prevailing ocean currents.
