Echinosteliidae

Echinostelium is a genus of slime mould, and the only genus in the family Echinosteliaceae, or Echinosteliidae. It was discovered by Heinrich Anton de Bary in 1855, apparently near Frankfurt am Main. It has an "apogamic" life cycle; only minute plasmodia are produced, which have never been seen to undergo sexual fusion. The plasmodium can divide vegetatively, in a process called plasmotomy, to distinguish it from true cell division. The genus Echinostelium comprises at least five species: [more]
