Diagnosis: Flattened with prominent subpseudopodia, flexible and tapering to a fine tip and sometimes furcated near their base (acanthopodia), or with more distal, broader lobose furcated subpseudopodia, sometimes emerging from a hyaloplasm sheet; without adhesive uroid; flattened sheet without subpseudopodia; some sporocarpic and protosteloid; generally plasma membrane naked without surface scales or styles, although surface coats of varying organization occur in some taxa. Cytoplasmic MT architecture composed of complex network of long coiled or looped MT fibers. Actin microfilament in the form of uniform acanthopodial fibers or a crown of hyaloplasmic microfibers arranged in parallel in the leading region of pseudopodium.
