We describe three new orders of filosan Cercozoa, five new deep-branching genera, eight new species of Thaumatomonas, Reckertia, Spongomonas, Rhogostoma, Agitata, Neoheteromita and Paracercomonas, sequence their 18S rDNA, and construct 18S rDNA trees for 148 Cercozoa. Our phylogeny indicates that Filosa were ancestrally gliding flagellates; non-flagellate filose amoebae evolved from them five times independently. The new genera are more closely related to environmental DNA sequences than… Expand
Phylogeny of Heterokonta: Incisomonas marina, a uniciliate gliding opalozoan related to Solenicola (Nanomonadea), and evidence that Actinophryida evolved from raphidophytes.
TLDR
The comprehensive maximum likelihood heterokont phylogeny shows Nanomonadea as sister to MAST-12 plus Opalinata within Opalozoa, and that Actinophryida are not Opalozosa, but highly modified raphidomonads, arguably related to Heliorapha (formerly Ciliophrys) azurina gen. Expand
A Novel Lineage of 'Naked Filose Amoebae'; Kraken carinae gen. nov. sp. nov. (Cercozoa) with a Remarkable Locomotion by Disassembly of its Cell Body.
TLDR
Phylogenetic analyses of SSU sequences reveal that Kraken are core (filosan) Cercozoa, branching weakly at the base of the cercomonad radiation, most closely related to Paracercomonas, Metabolomonas, and Brevimastigomonas. Expand
Oxnerella micra sp. n. (Oxnerellidae fam. n.), a tiny naked centrohelid, and the diversity and evolution of heliozoa.
TLDR
Concatenated Bayesian 18S/28S rRNA phylogeny shows centrohelids weakly as sisters to the naked non-centrohelid heliozoan Microheliella maris (Microhelida: Heliozoa), and reclassify two Polyplacocystis, Luffisphaera, Phaeodaria and Rotosphaerida. Expand
The mystery of clade X: Orciraptor gen. nov. and Viridiraptor gen. nov. are highly specialised, algivorous amoeboflagellates (Glissomonadida, Cercozoa).
TLDR
Stable, bacteria-free cultures of several limnetic, algivorous amoeboflagellates were investigated and the phenotypic identity of a clade was established, which until now was exclusively known from environmental sequences, and the new family Viridiraptoridae was erected for 'clade X'. Expand
Phylogeny and evolution of Planomonadida (Sulcozoa): eight new species and new genera Fabomonas and Nutomonas.
TLDR
Morphology and 18S and ITS2 rDNA sequences show that 11 represent eight new species described here, corresponding to revised Planomonas and Ancyromonas and new genera Fabomonas (marine) and Nutomona (freshwater). Expand
Rhizarian ‘Novel Clade 10’ Revealed as Abundant and Diverse Planktonic and Terrestrial Flagellates, including Aquavolon n. gen.
TLDR
Screening of a wide range of environmental DNA extractions with lineage‐specific PCR primers reveals that Aquavolonida consists of a large radiation of protists, which are most diversified in freshwater planktonic habitats and as yet undetected in marine environments. Expand
Multigene phylogeny and cell evolution of chromist infrakingdom Rhizaria: contrasting cell organisation of sister phyla Cercozoa and Retaria
TLDR
The authors' multiprotein trees confirm that Rhizaria are sisters of infrakingdom Halvaria within chromist subkingdom Harosa (= SAR, and are consistent with holophyly of Chromista as sister of kingdom Plantae. Expand
Placement of the unclassified Cyranomonas australis Lee 2002 within a novel clade of Cercozoa.
TLDR
These findings suggest that C. australis may not belong to any previously described family within Filosa and Cercozoa, and form a clade with strong statistical supports, here called novel clade CU (Cyranomonas plus Uncultured eukaryotes). Expand
Evolutionary Relationship of the Scale-Bearing Kraken (incertae sedis, Monadofilosa, Cercozoa, Rhizaria): Combining Ultrastructure Data and a Two-Gene Phylogeny.
TLDR
The phylogenetic analyses confirmed previous results, indicating Kraken as a sister group to Paracercomonas in Sarcomonadea with an increased but still low support of 0.98 PP/63 BP. Expand
Multiple origins of Heliozoa from flagellate ancestors: New cryptist subphylum Corbihelia, superclass Corbistoma, and monophyly of Haptista, Cryptista, Hacrobia and Chromista.
TLDR
Microheliella is sister to new superclass Corbistoma, showing that these axopodial protists evolved independently from zooflagellate ancestors, and is grouped as new cryptist subphylum Corbihelia with dense fibrillar interorganellar connections. Expand

Molecular phylogeny of Amoebozoa and the evolutionary significance of the unikont Phalansterium
TLDR
It is argued that the ancestral amoebozoan was probably unikont and that the cenancestral eukaryote may have been also. Expand
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. Expand
Morphology and molecular phylogeny of a marine interstitial tetraflagellate with putative endosymbionts: Auranticordis quadriverberis n. gen. et sp. (Cercozoa)
TLDR
The discovery and characterization of A. quadriverberis underscores how poorly the authors understand the diversity of cercozoans and, potentially, represents one of the few independent cases of primary endosymbiosis within the Cercozoa and beyond. Expand
Phylogeny, taxonomy, and astounding genetic diversity of glissomonadida ord. nov., the dominant gliding zooflagellates in soil (Protozoa: Cercozoa).
TLDR
In a thorough overhaul of glissomonad taxonomy, 29 new species, new genera Sandona, Neoheteromita, Flectomonas, Allapsa, and Teretomonas are described, and morphologically distinctive families: Sandonidae, AllAPSidae, Bodomorphidae, and Proleptomonadidae are described. Expand
Sarcomonad ribosomal RNA sequences, rhizopod phylogeny, and the origin of euglyphid amoebae
TLDR
Trees robustly show that sarcomonads, euglyphids, and Chlorarachnea are together specifically related to Plasmodiophora, previously classified in the opalozoan class Phytomyxea: these taxa are now included in a revised phylum Rhizopoda. Expand
Phylogeny of novel naked Filose and Reticulose Cercozoa: Granofilosea cl. n. and Proteomyxidea revised.
TLDR
The classically mainly reticulose Proteomyxidea to Endomyxa is transferred, removing evident filosans as new class Granofilosea (including Desmothoracida, Acinetactis and new heliomonad family Heliomorphidae (new genus Heliomorpha (=Dimorpha)). Expand
Heterotrophic Amoebae, Flagellates and Heliozoa from the Tvärminne Area, Gulf of Finland, in 1988–1990
Abstract Ninety-five taxa of heterotrophic protists (amoebae, flagellates and heliozoa) were encountered in wild material and cultures established from marine samples from Tvarminne Archipelago, GulfExpand
Phylogenetic position of Gromia oviformis Dujardin inferred from nuclear-encoded small subunit ribosomal DNA.
TLDR
Sequence analyses show Gromia to be a member of the Cercozoa, a heterogeneous assemblage which includes filose amoebae, the isoeboflagellate cercomonads, the chlorarachniophytes and the plasmodiophorid plant pathogens, and proposes that most protists possessing filopodia, reticulopodies and axopodias have a common origin.

TLDR
Six new small subunit (SSU) ribosomal DNA sequences from the heterotrophic flagellate genera Cercomonas, Heteromita, and Thaumatomonas are presented and it is suggested that some of the members of the present genus Cercom onas should be placed in a new genus Neocer comonas gen. nov. Expand
