Heterolobosea is a small group of amoebae, amoeboflagellates and flagellates (ca. 140 described species). Since heterolobosean amoebae are highly reminiscent of naked lobose amoebae of Amoebozoa, they were for a long time treated as members of Rhizopoda (Levine, 1980). The class Heterolobosea was established in 1985 by Page and Blanton (Page & Blanton, 1985) by uniting unicellular Schizopyrenida with Acrasida that form multicellular bodies. Later, it was suggested that Heterolobosea might be… 

Figures from this paper


Monopylocystis visvesvarai n. gen., n. sp. and Sawyeria marylandensis n. gen., n. sp.: two new amitochondrial heterolobosean amoebae from anoxic environments.
In phylogenetic analyses of small-subunit rRNA gene sequences, Monopylocystis visvesvarai, Sawyeria marylandensis and Psalteriomonas lanterna converge to form a single clade of non-aerobic (anaerobic/microaerophilic) heteroloboseans.
A New Heterolobosean Amoeba Solumitrus palustris n. g., n. sp. Isolated from Freshwater Marsh Soil
A new genus and species, Solumitrus palustris, is proposed for this new heterolobosean strain of amoeba isolated from organic rich soil at the margin of freshwater swamp in the northeastern United States, based on differentiated features, including morphology of the uroid, cyst wall structure, and molecular genetic evidence that distinguish it from A. spelaea.
Studies on Amebo‐flagellates, I. The General Morphology and Mastigonts of Trimastigamoeba philippinensis Whitmore 1911
It is concluded that the organism is generically and specifically distinct; and while its name is erroneously descriptive of its flagellate phase, it is taxonomically valid.
A Morphologically Simple Species of Acrasis (Heterolobosea, Excavata), Acrasis helenhemmesae n. sp.
Nuclear‐encoded 18S rRNA gene phylogenies demonstrate that the five isolates form a highly supported clade that is sister to A. rosea, and are proposed as a new species, Acrasis helenhemmesae n.
Tsukubamonas globosa n. gen., n. sp., A Novel Excavate Flagellate Possibly Holding a Key for the Early Evolution in “Discoba”
The ultrastructure and phylogenetic position of a free‐living heterotrophic flagellate, Tsukubamonas globosa, and detailed morphological comparisons elucidated that T. globosa possessed a novel set of morphological features, and could not be classified into any taxa in the Discoba clade.
