Eumycetozoa = Amoebozoa?: SSUrDNA Phylogeny of Protosteloid Slime Molds and Its Significance for the Amoebozoan Supergroup
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.

A new ballistosporous species of Protostelium.
During surveys of the protostelids of the Hawaiian Islands and the South Island of New Zealand, an undescribed species of Protostelium was discovered fruiting on collections of substrates found inExpand
First records of protostelids from northern India
Twelve species of protostelids were isolated from samples of aerial litter and ground litter collected from three study sites in the Himalayan Mountains of northern India. Samples of aerial litterExpand
Distribution and ecology of protostelids in Great Smoky Mountains National Park
Differences in protostelid community diversity and species richness were found between the aerial litter and ground litter microhabitats of primary plant tissues, betweenPrimary tissues and bark of living trees, between bark from angiosperms and bark from gymnosperms, and between primary tissues and coarse woody debris.

Nivicolous myxomycetes from alpine areas of south-eastern Australia
In contrast to most other areas of the world where nivicolous myxomycetes have been studied, species of Diderma have been represented poorly among the collections from Australia. Expand
A genomic survey shows that the haloarchaeal type tyrosyl tRNA synthetase is not a synapomorphy of opisthokonts.
A taxon-wide genomic survey of tyrRS in eukaryotes and prokaryotes shows that haloarchaeal-type tyrRS is not a synapomorphy of opisthokonts, demonstrating that molecular markers should be re-evaluated once a better taxon sampling becomes available. Expand
Protostelids from German Beech forests
A survey for protostelids from old-growth beech forests of northeastern Germany resulted in 14 species found in both ground and aerial litter, constituting the first survey of these organisms fromExpand
