PROTEOMYXA, a name given by E. Ray Lankester (Ency. "Monera " of Haeckel, supposed (erroneously in most if not all
Brit., 9th ed., 1885, art.“ Protozoa, ") to a group of Protozoa species adequately studied) to possess no nucleus in the proto-
Sarcodina. The group was really recognized as distinct by plasm. The following are the characteristics of the group.

o slove not freely branching; reproducing sometimes by simple fission,

but more frequently by multiple fission in a brood-cyst whose
walls may be multiple. Plasmodium formation occasional, but

never leading to the formation of a massive fructification: other b ozb

syngamic processes unknown, and probably non-existent.

Encystment, or at least a resting stage at full growth, is very D

no longa characteristic, and frequently an excretion of granules takes al

place into the first-formed cyst, whereupon a second inner cyst is formed which may be followed by a third. These brood-cysts, in which multiple fission takes place, may be of two kinds. ordinary and resting, the latter being distinguished by a firm, and usually ornamented and cuticularized cell-wall, and only producing its zoospores after an interval. Besides, an individual at any age may under unfavourable conditions surround itself with a "hypnocyst," to pass the time until matters are more suitable to active life, when it emerges unchanged.

From the initial character of the brood-cell on leaving the sporocyst the dividing character of the two orders is taken.

1. Zoosporeae, Zopf. The brood-cells leave the cyst as " Monads" (with one or two flagella). Genera: Pseudospora, Cienk.; Prolomonas, Cienk.; Diplophysalis, Zopf.; Gymnococcus, Z.; Aphelidium, Z.; Pseudosporidium, Z.; Plasniodiophora, Woronin; Tetramyxa, Goebel.

2. Azoosporeae, Zopf. Genera: End yonema, Z.; Vampyrella, Cienk. (figs. 1,2,3); Leptophrys, Hertw, and Less.; Bursulla, Sorokin; Protogenes, Hacck. (fig. 8); Archerina, Lank. (figs. 4-7); Serosporidium, L. Pfeiffer; Lymphosporidium, Calkins.

Many of the species are endoparasites in living cells, mostly of Algae or Fungi, but not exclusively. At least two species of Pseudospora have been taken for reproductive stages in the life history of their hosts-whence indeed the generic name Plasmodiophora brassicae gives rise to the disease known as "Hanburies" or "fingers and toes' in Cruciferae; Lymphosporidium causes a virulent epidemic among the American brook-trout, Salvelinus fontinalis. Archerina bolloni is remarkable for containing a pair of chlorophyll corpuscles in each cell; no nucleus has been made out, but the chlorophyll bodies divide previous to fission. It is a fresh-water form. The cells of this species form loose aggregates or filoplasmodia, like those of Mikrogromia (Foraminifera, q.v.) or Leydenia (Labyrinthuloidea, 9.v.), &c.

Vampyrella (figs. 1-3) and Enteromyxa also form a compact plasmodium which separates into I-nucleate cells, which then encyst and divide into a brood of four.
