Description of Cochliopodiidae

Amoebae partially enclosed within a flexible cuticle or wall (tectum) usually covered with microscales. The covering is open along the region of attachment to the substratum; with no well defined aperture. Amoebae in this family have been classified as testate amoebae by Page (1987b) but are included in this chapter because they resemble euamoebae at the light microscope level. Typically they have a distinct hyaline zone often with short subpseudopodia, and a prominant central granular hump.
