The long-time unnoticed soil amoebae Deuteramoeba algonquinensis (Baldock, Rogerson et Berger, 1983) Page, 1987 and D. mycophaga (Pussard, Alabouvette, Lemaitre et Pons, 1980) Page, 1988 were recorded in the terrestrial habitats of Malé Karpaty Mts. (Slovakia) and its morphology investigated using live observations at the light microscopical level. The polypodial and monopodial locomotive form of D. algonquinensis is typical with a large hyaline cap on the anterior ends of the pseudopodia… Expand

Study of a rediscovered large freshwater multinucleate amoeba Chaos illinoisense (Kudo, 1950)
Summary A large freshwater multinucleate amoeba Chaos illinoisense (Amoebidae), previously only recorded in natural collection by Kudo (1950, 1951) from a small pond in Illinois, Central NorthExpand
Study of Polychaos annulatum penard, 1902 comb. nov. (gymnamoebia, amoebidae) with taxonomical analysis of Polychaos fasciculatum-like species
TLDR
All three species mentioned above are similar but different species, distinguishable only based on a complex of characteristic features, and the proposition by Siemensma (1987) to consider the four species names mentioned above as synonyms cannot be accepted. Expand
Ultrastructure and Description of a Fungus‐Feeding Amoeba, Trichamoeba mycophaga n. sp. (Amoebidae, Amoebea), from Australia1
. An amoeba isolated from a wheatfield and a forest soil in Australia has been identified as Trichamoeba mycophaga n. sp. Trophozoites of this amoeba are palmate to elongate and measure 45–136 μm inExpand
The genus Thecamoeba (Protozoa, Gymnamoebia) Species distinctions, locomotive morphology, and protozoan prey
TLDR
Locomotive form/behaviour and interphase nuclear structure are adequate to distinguish all known species of Thecamoeba, and on that basis the diagnoses of several species have been clarified and questions of possible synonymy resolved. Expand
Observations on morphology of insufficiently known amoebae Saccamoeba wellneri Siemensma, 1987 and Saccamoeba limna Bovee, 1972 (Gymnamoebia: Hartmannellidae)
TLDR
This paper is helpful for their identification on the base of locomotive morphology, floating, and resting forms and allows distinguishing S. wellneri and S. limna from other hartmannellids at light microscopic level. Expand
Two new species of marine amoebae: Hartmannella lobifera n. sp. and Korotnevella nivo n. sp. (Lobosea, Gymnamoebida)
TLDR
Two new species of marine amoebae, isolated from the Sound (Denmark) are described and it is indicated that it is difficult to use the structure of surface scales in Paramoebidae as a taxonomic character. Expand
First records of soil ciliates (Protozoa, Ciliophora) from classes Prostomea, Nassophorea, Spirotrichea, and Colpodea in Slovakia
TLDR
The shape and nuclear variants of Paragonostomum multin nucleatum are presented and populations of P. multinucleatum and T. stramenticola are morphometrically characterized. Expand
Guide to the methods of study and identification of soil gymnamoebae
TLDR
This guide is an attempt to build a “bridge” between the general textbooks on protozoa and the guides to amoebae intended for specialists, based on a classification system ofAmoeba morphotypes, i.e. on the classification of the generalized shapes of the locomotive form of an amoEBa. Expand
BIODIVERSITY OF SELECTED INVERTEBRATE GROUPS IN OAK-HORNBEAM FOREST ECOSYSTEM IN SW SLOVAKIA
TLDR
Analysis of 4–year long coenological research on micro- and macrofauna in oak-hornbeam forest ecosystems in SW Slovakia concluded that there are stronger bonds onto soil at arthropods, represented particularly by epigeic, partially by typically edaphic species. Expand
NOTES ON ACTIVE GYMNAMOEBAE (RHIZOPODA, GYMNAMOEBIA) IN TURIEC RIVER
By direct examination of 8 samples of sediments of Turiec river (Central Slovakia) in August 2001, 14 taxa (2 orders, 8 families, 12 genera) of active gymnamoebae were noted. Several notes toExpand
