Naked lobose amoebae

Naked lobose amoebae are traditionally called gymnamoebae, a group of aerobic amoeboid protists, unified by forming wide, smooth, cytoplasmic projections (lobopodia), driven by an actomyosin cytoskeleton. Cilia or flagella are absent. Amoebae are polymorphic; a single cell can adopt very different shapes, especially when it is stationary or moves in a non-coordinated manner, often changing the direction of locomotion.
