ABSTRACT. We describe Hicanonectes teleskopos n. g., n. sp., a heterotrophic flagellate isolated from low‐oxygen marine sediment. Hicanonectes teleskopos has a ventral groove and two unequal flagella, and rapidly rotates during swimming. At the ultrastructural level H. teleskopos is a “typical excavate”: it displays flagellar vanes, a split right microtubular root, “I,”“B,” and “C” fibres, a singlet microtubular root, and a possible composite fibre. Small subunit rRNA (SSU rRNA) gene… 
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.
Cell Morphology and Formal Description of Ergobibamus cyprinoides n. g., n. sp., Another Carpediemonas‐Like Relative of Diplomonads
TLDR
E. cyprinoides is a bean‐shaped biflagellated cell, 7–11.5 μm long, with a conspicuous groove, and instead of classical mitochondria there are cristae‐lacking rounded organelles 300–400 nm in diameter.
Cryptic Diversity of Free‐Living Parabasalids, Pseudotrichomonas keilini and Lacusteria cypriaca n. g., n. sp., as Inferred from Small Subunit rDNA Sequences
TLDR
This data demonstrated that the free‐living parabasalids P. keilini and Lacusteria cypriaca n.

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.
Andalucia (n. gen.)—the Deepest Branch Within Jakobids (Jakobida; Excavata), Based on Morphological and Molecular Study of a New Flagellate from Soil
TLDR
Morphological analyses incorporating the A. godoyi data strongly support the monophyly of all jakobids, and a new genus Andalucia n.

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).
Evolutionary history of "early-diverging" eukaryotes: the excavate taxon Carpediemonas is a close relative of Giardia.
TLDR
Although diplomonads and retortamonads lack any mitochondria-like organelle, Carpediemonas contains double membrane-bounded structures physically resembling hydrogenosomes, suggesting that it will be valuable in interpreting the evolutionary significance of many molecular and cellular peculiarities of diplomonades.
