Despite being amongst the more familiar groups of heterotrophic flagellates, the evolutionary affinities of oxymonads remain poorly understood. A re-interpretation of the cytoskeleton of the oxymonad Monocercomonoides hausmanni suggests that this organism has a similar ultrastructural organisation to members of the informal assemblage 'excavate taxa'. The preaxostyle, 'R1' root, and 'R2' root of M. hausmanni are proposed to be homologous to the right, left, and anterior roots respectively of… CONTINUE READING
