Description of Reticulamoeba

Marine amoeba with delicate radiating branching and anastomosing pseudopodia linking smaller masses of cytoplasm. Feeds on diatoms, and produced biflagellated swarmers. Very similar to Leucodictyon which differs because cell bodies are enclosed in loricas and because cells tend to be more aggregated, especially when feeding, marine.
