Dinamoeba

Page updated 1/3/02

Dinamoeba mirabilis is a large(150 - 340um), algivorous amoeba   (Jahn & Jahn, 1949).   There is not much known about this species but it has been suggested to be related to the Mastigamoeba (Page, 1988) on morphological grounds and because both Dinamoeba mirabilis and Mastigamoeba aspera are reported to be euryhaline. No cyst or flagella stage reported.
