The subkingdom Protozoa now inclues over 65,000 named species, of which over half are fossil and approximately 10,000 are parasitic. Among living species, this includes approximately 250 parasitic and 11,300 free-living sarcodines (of which approximately 4,600 are foraminiferids); approximately 1,8000 parasitic and 5,100 free-living flagellates; approximately 5,600 parasitic "Sporozoa" (including Apicomplexa, Microspora, Myxospora, and Ascetospora); and approximately 2,5000 parasitic and 4,700… Expand
Systematics of the parasitic Protozoa.

TLDR
The most important changes that are likely to affect parasitologists are these, the myxosporidians, formerly classified among the sporozoans, are now clearly recognised as metazoans and are placed in the kingdom Animalia. Expand
THE DEMISE OF A CLASS OF PROTISTS : TAXONOMIC AND NOMENCLATURAL REVISIONS PROPOSED FOR THE PROTIST PHYLUM MYXOZOA GRASSE, 1970
TLDR
The taxonomy of the Myxozoa is revised and suppression of the newer class Actinosporea and the order Actinomyxidia Stolc, 1899 is proposed. Expand
Biodiversity of the Coccidia (Apicomplexa: Conoidasida) in vertebrates: what we know, what we do not know, and what needs to be done.
Over the last two decades my colleagues and I have assembled the literature on a good percentage of most of the coccidians (Conoidasida) known, to date, to parasitise: Amphibia, four major lineagesExpand
The complexities in the classification of protozoa: a challenge to parasitologists
This paper revisits the controversial issues bedevilling classification of the parasitic protozoa as a result of varying interest by different scientists belonging to protozoology and parasitologyExpand
The Rumen Protozoa
TLDR
In addition to the bacteria in the rumen there are many larger organisms which at various times have been designated protozoa, of which there are two groups both in the subclass Trichostomatia and the entodiniomorphs. Expand
Phylogenetics: Taxonomy and the microsporidia as derived fungi
TLDR
This chapter reviews the data on the taxonomy of the microsporidia and the relationship of these organisms to other eukaryotes. Expand
The Protozoan Phylum Opalozoa
TLDR
The first detailed classification of the protozoan phylum Opalozoa is presented here and it is divided into four subphyla (three new), eight classes (four new, one emended), three subclasses (all new), three superorders ( all new) and 22 orders of which 12 are new and one is emended. Expand
Consideration of Taxonomic-Nomenclatural Problems Posed by Report of Myxosporidians with a Two-Host Life Cycle1
TLDR
If future investigations confirm the existence of a two-host life cycle for Myxobolus cerebralis and perhaps for other related myxosporidian fish parasites, then the phylogenetic distinctiveness of Myxososporidia and Actinomyxidea has been undermined and perhaps they can no longer be treated as evolutionarily divergent assemblages. Expand
What are the taxonomic and evolutionary relationships of the Protozoa to the Protista?
TLDR
A new "packaging" of phyla within the great kingdom Protista is proposed, based largely on historical groupings and admittedly "unnatural" but may clarify some long-persisting problems, especially with regard to mixed algal-protozoan groups and/or phylogenies. Expand
The twilight of Sarcodina: a molecular perspective on the polyphyletic origin of amoeboid protists
TLDR
Although the molecular data clearly indicate that the pseudopodial structures have been developed several times in the history of eukaryotes, they also show that a large diversification of amoeboid protists occurred only twice, in lineages leading to Amoebozoa and Rhizaria. Expand

Problems in the Systematics of the “Sporozoa”*
TLDR
The taxonomy of the so-called Sporozoa is reviewed, and it is concluded that the group is polyphyletic and should be split into the following independent taxa: Euspora, CNIDOSPORA, and PIRO PLASMASIDA. Expand
Revision of the Order Hypotrichida (Ciliophora, Protozoa)1
TLDR
The revision recognizes 310 species distributed among 51 genera and 6 families, based on the known limits of structural variation as well as decisions relative to synonyms and homonyms. Expand
Remarks on the Composition of the Large Ciliate Class Kinetofragmophora de Puytorac et al., 1974, and Recognition of Several New Taxa Therein, with Emphasis on the Primitive Order Primociliatida N. Ord.*
TLDR
New significance is placed on ultrastructural data, on macronuclear differences of evolutionary importance, and on habitat and behavior in the large new class of ciliates, Kinetofragmophora de Puytorac et al., 1974. Expand
On the Evolution and Systematics of Ciliated Protozoa
TLDR
In the present discussion particular emphasis will be placed upon the problems of evolution and phylogenetic interrelationship at the ordinal and supra-ordinal levels. Expand
Lorica composition of modern and fossil Tintinnida (ciliate Protozoa), systematics, geologic distribution, and some new Tertiary taxa
TLDR
Two superfamilies are proposed for the order Tintinnida: Codonellidea (new) contains the families Tint Innidiidae, CodoneLLidae,Codonellopsidae, Coxliellidae, and probably Dictyocystidae, Eppiplocylididae, Petalotrichidae; and Tint Finnidae (emended), which lacks a ciliary membrane and has vertical or transverse structures.

THE SYSTEMATIC POSITION OF THE MYXOMYCETES
In the long history of the attempt to classify living organisms the limits and status of many groups have undergone great modification, but surely there are few of them in which the changes have beenExpand

TLDR
A study of nine species of small free-living amoebae has been made under standardized and reproducible cultural conditions, by a new method that enables specimens in all stages of division to be obtained easily, and of two main types on which it is proposed to create two new families— Schizopyrenidae and Hartmannellidae.
