ABSTRACT. About 20 new isolates of Carpediemonas‐like organisms (CLOs) have been reported since 2006. Small subunit rRNA gene phylogenies divide CLOs into six major clades: four contain described exemplars (i.e. Carpediemonas, Dysnectes, Hicanonectes, and Kipferlia), but two include only undescribed organisms. Here we describe a representative of one of these latter clades as Ergobibamus cyprinoides n. g., n. sp., and catalogue its ultrastructure. Ergobibamus cyprinoides is a bean‐shaped… 
Tsukubamonas globosa n. gen., n. sp., A Novel Excavate Flagellate Possibly Holding a Key for the Early Evolution in “Discoba”
TLDR
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.
Ultrastructure and Molecular Phylogeny of Iotanema spirale gen. nov. et sp. nov., a New Lineage of Endobiotic Fornicata with Strikingly Simplified Ultrastructure
TLDR
This study reports the discovery of a novel fornicate, Iotanema spirale, obtained from fresh feces of the gecko Phelsuma madagascariensis, and improves the understanding of character evolution within Fornicata when placed within the molecular phylogenetic context.
The flagellar apparatus of the glaucophyte Cyanophora cuspidata
TLDR
This work examines Cyanophora cuspidata using scanning and transmission electron microscopy, and constructs a model of its cytoskeleton using serial‐section TEM, and describes previously unknown and unsuspected features of its microtubular roots, including a rearrangement of individual microtubules within the posterior right root.
The draft genome of Kipferlia bialata reveals reductive genome evolution in fornicate parasites
TLDR
The draft genome sequence of a free-living fornicate, Kipferlia bialata is presented, the divergence of which is earlier than those of the fornication parasites, and it is shown that the number of protein genes and introns in K.bialata genome are the most abundant in the genomes of three fornicates, reflecting an ancestral state of fornicates genome evolution.

Ultrastructure and Ribosomal RNA Phylogeny of the Free‐Living Heterotrophic Flagellate Dysnectes brevis n. gen., n. sp., a New Member of the Fornicata
TLDR
Detailed electron microscopic observations revealed that D. brevis possesses all the key ultrastructural characters considered typical of Excavata, and it is classified as a new free‐living excavate in the Fornicata incertae sedis.
Light Microscopic Observations, Ultrastructure, and Molecular Phylogeny of Hicanonectes teleskopos n. g., n. sp., a Deep‐Branching Relative of Diplomonads
TLDR
Hicanonectes teleskopos has a ventral groove and two unequal flagella, and rapidly rotates during swimming, and forms a clade with the deep‐branching fornicate Carpediemonas, with moderate‐to‐strong bootstrap support, although their SSU rRNA gene sequences are quite dissimilar.
Inference of the phylogenetic position of oxymonads based on nine genes: support for metamonada and excavata.
TLDR
It is demonstrated that the genes are in conflict regarding the position of oxymonads, and a well-supported group of Metamonada that branched weakly with euglenozoans is recovered, providing conditional support for the existence of Excavata.
A wide diversity of previously undetected free-living relatives of diplomonads isolated from marine/saline habitats.
TLDR
C culturing techniques are used to examine the diversity of free-living protists that are relatives of diplomonads and retortamonads, a group of evolutionary and parasitological importance.
Some free-living flagellates (protista) from anoxic habitats
TLDR
This work confirms the existence of many poorly understood anaerobic flagellates, the study of which could increase the understanding of the pattern of mitochondrial gain and/or loss among extant eukaryotes, as well as the operation of anoxic ecosystems.

TLDR
An overview of the controversial proposal for the major eukaryote taxon "Excavata" is presented, with phylogenetic diagnoses for Excavata and for two novel taxon names, Fornicata (Carpediemonas, retortamonads, diplomonads) and Preaxostyla (Trimastix, oxymonads).
