ABSTRACT Reticulomyxa filosa is a freshwater protist possessing fine granular, branching and anastomosing pseudopodia and therefore traditionally placed in the class Granuloreticulosea, order Athalamida, as a sister group to the order Foraminiferida. Recent studies have revealed remarkable similarities in pseudopodial motility and ultrastructure between R. filosa and foraminifera (e.g. Allogromia laticollaris), prompting us to conduct a molecular phylogenetic analysis of these seemingly… 
Multigene evidence for close evolutionary relations between Gromia and Foraminifera
TLDR
Analysis of sequences of actin, large subunit of the RNA polymerase II (RPB1) and small subunit (SSU) rRNA genes and the structure of the polyubiquitin of G. oviformis support the hypothesis that the morphological resemblance between Gromia and Foraminifera may be due to a shared common ancestor.
Molecular phylogeny of Foraminifera a review
TLDR
Molecular phylogenetic studies showed that Foraminifera include both testate and naked species and that they occur in marine, freshwater, and terrestrial environments and revealed high taxonomic diversity of monothalamous (single-chambered) foraminiferans that developed different types of organic and agglutinated tests.
New Naked Freshwater Foraminifer arc
TLDR
Both morphological and genetic data undoubtedly show that the new species is a new aked freshwater foraminifer and the second species of the clade K. sp.
Gymnophrys cometa and Lecythium sp are core Cercozoa: Evolutionary implications
TLDR
The study shows that the two organisms clearly belong to the Cercozoa, and indicates that Gymnophrys is not closely related to Foraminifera, supporting the view that Granuloreticulosea sensu lato do not form a natural assemblage.
PHYLOGENY OF ALLOGROMIID FORAMINIFERA INFERRED FROM SSU rRNA GENE SEQUENCES
TLDR
The definition of allogromiids is proposed to be revised to include all naked and testate unilocular granuloreticuloseans that diverged early in the evolution of Foraminifera.
Foraminifera and Cercozoa share a common origin according to RNA polymerase II phylogenies.
TLDR
A fragment of the largest subunit of the RNA polymerase II (RPB1) from five foraminiferans, two cercozoans and the testate filosean Gromia oviformis is sequenced and confirms a close relationship between Foraminifera and Cercozoa and points to Gromian as the closest relative of Foraminationifera.
Small Subunit Ribosomal DNA Suggests that the Xenophyophorean Syringammina corbicula1 is a Foraminiferan
TLDR
The Xenophyophorea appear to be a highly specialised group of deep-sea Foraminifera, congruent with observations of similar cytoplasmic organisation in Rhizammina and SyringamminA.
Evolution and molecular phylogeny of Cibicides and Uvigerina (Rotaliida, Foraminifera)
TLDR
The phylogenetic reconstruction based on molecular and fossil data shows that the studied uvigerinids either appeared during the Oligocene-early Miocene or during the Pliocene-Quaternary, and two out of three previously morphologically defined groups: peregrina and semiornata were recognized in molecular phylogenies.

Early origin of foraminifera suggested by SSU rRNA gene sequences.
TLDR
Phylogenetic analysis of the complete small subunit (SSU) rRNA gene sequences of three species of foraminifera indicates that they branch very deeply in the eukaryotic evolutionary tree: later than those of the amitochondrial Archezoa, but earlier than Those of the Euglenozoa and other mitochondria-bearing phyla.
Phylogenetic relationships between the Acantharea and the Polycystinea: a molecular perspective on Haeckel's Radiolaria.
TLDR
It is concluded that the Actinopoda does not represent a monophyletic evolutionary assemblage and is recommended that this taxonomic designation be discarded.
Extreme differences in rates of molecular evolution of foraminifera revealed by comparison of ribosomal DNA sequences and the fossil record.
TLDR
It is estimated that the rate of rDNA evolution in planktonic foraminifera is 50 to 100 times faster than in some benthic foraminaifera, and the use of the maximum-likelihood method and limitation of analyzed sites to the most conserved parts of the SSU rRNA molecule render molecular and paleontological data generally congruent.
Phylogenetic position of foraminifera inferred from LSU rRNA gene sequences.
TLDR
Analysis of 610 unambiguously aligned bases shows that foraminifera branch closely to plasmodial and cellular slime molds in the middle of the eukaryotic tree--that is, much earlier than suggested by the fossil record.

Unusual distribution of gamma-tubulin in the giant fresh water amoeba Reticulomyxa filosa.
TLDR
The deduced amino acid sequence revealed a high homology to known gamma- Tubulin sequences from other organisms, underlining the hypothesis of conserved functions for gamma-tubulin in the cell.
The unusually long small subunit ribosomal RNA of Phreatamoeba balamuthi.
TLDR
Primary sequence comparison and similar secondary structure indicate a 61 base stem and loop repeat within an expansion region; a mechanism whereby the repeat may have been incorporated is presented.
