VASE-SHAPED MICROFOSSILS FROM THE NEOPROTEROZOIC CHUAR GROUP, GRAND CANYON: A CLASSIFICATION GUIDED BY MODERN TESTATE AMOEBAE
Abstract Vase-shaped microfossil (VSM) assemblages from early diagenetic carbonate nodules in >742 ± 6 Ma black shales of the Chuar Group, Grand Canyon, provide evidence for affinities with testateExpand

Phylogenetic Analyses of Small Subunit Ribosomal RNA Coding Regions Reveal a Monophyletic Lineage of Euglyphid Testate Amoebae (Order Euglyphida)
Abstract The Testaceafilosia includes amoebae with filopodia and with a proteinaceous, agglutinated or siliceous test. To explore the deeper phylogeny of this group, we sequenced the small subunitExpand

Phylogenetic reconstruction based on COI reshuffles the taxonomy of hyalosphenid shelled (testate) amoebae and reveals the convoluted evolution of shell plate shapes
Species diversity in most protistan groups has been underestimated. Many morpho‐species are in fact complexes that require detailed morphometric studies to be discriminated. However, which traits canExpand

SSU rRNA reveals a sequential increase in shell complexity among the euglyphid testate amoebae (Rhizaria: Euglyphida).
The existing data on the molecular phylogeny of filose testate amoebae from order Euglyphida has revealed contradictions between traditional morphological classification and SSU rRNA phylogeny and,Expand

Sphenoderiidae (fam. nov.), a new clade of euglyphid testate amoebae characterized by small, round scales surrounding the aperture.
Euglyphid testate amoebae are a highly conspicuous group of Cercozoa whose systematics is based mainly on the shape and ultrastructure of the shell. However, only a couple of species have beenExpand

Effects of some environmental factors on the shell morphology of testate amoebae (Rhizopoda, Protozoa)
Summary Cultures were used to test the impact of environmental factors on clones of testate amoebae. Morphological changes in the shell are of particular interest in this field of research. AnExpand

Morphological and molecular characterization of a new terrestrial allogromiid species: Edaphoallogromia australica gen. et spec. nov. (Foraminifera) from Northern Queensland (Australia).
The foraminiferal family Allogromiidae occurs mainly in marine environments, although some genera are described from brackish and freshwater habitats. We report here the occurrence of a terrestrialExpand
