Introduction

Malawimonads are a group of small flagellates, so far comprising a single genus with one named species Malawimonas jakobiformis, plus one undescribed isolate that is studied under the name ‘Malawimonas californiana’ (or ‘Malawimonas californiensis’). Entirely unknown prior to the 1990s Malawimonads are of significant evolutionary interest because of their key position for understanding the phylogeny and evolution of excavate protists.
