Description of AthalameaGranuloreticulosea, lacking a test or shell, though some forms might be covered by a thin lorica. Pseudopods could arise anywhere over the surface of the body, and could be branched to a greater or lesser extent in different representa-tives of the group, with or without anastomosing connections in the pseudopodial network. Organisms that have not been examined by modern techniques, nor have been seen in recent years, to check the fact that they do have granular reticulopodial bidirectional streaming, have been removed from this class and placed with the amoebae of uncertain affinities. One genus remains: Reticulomyxa.
