Topic: Testate Amoeba

Hi Chris,
Please can you add the following testate amoebae to the species list please.

Protozoa - Amoebozoa -  Arcellinida
Hyalospheniidae Schultze, 1877 emend. Kosakyan and Lara, 2012
Nebela guttata Kosakyan et Lara, 2012

Protozoa - Amoebozoa -  Arcellinida
Cryptodifflugiidae Jung, 1942
Cryptodifflugia oviformis Penard, 1902

Siemensma, F. J., Microworld, world of amoeboid organisms. World-wide electronic publication, Kortenhoef, the Netherlands. Searched on December 4, 2021.(https://www.arcella.nl/)

Both genera are listed in:
Corbet, S. A. (1973) Microscopic animals in Sphagnum moss: an illustrated introduction to the testate rhizopods around Malham Tarn, Yorkshire. Field Studies 3 (5), 801-838.
It includes C. oviformis but not N. guttata, which may have been included in the N. collaris species complex.

Thank you
