Tetramitus
portrait amoeba

Tetramitus (tet-rah-might-us) is one of the heterolobose amoebae, which can be found as amoebae, flagellates or cysts. The amoebae produce their pseudopodia suddenly, a pattern of behaviour referred to as eruptive as opposed to the more usual slow progressive formation of pseudopodia. With file filaments making up the posterior uroid. Contractile vacuole located at the posterior end of the cell. Phase contrast.  This picture was taken by David Patterson, Linda Amaral Zettler, Mike Peglar and Tom Nerad from cultures and other materials maintained at the American Type Culture Collection during 2001. Image copyright: D. J. Patterson, L Amaral-Zettler, M. Peglar and T. Nerad, image used under license to MBL (micro*scope).
