Hass, H. & Kerp, H. (1999) Nature 399, 648. The Cellular Slime Moulds The slime moulds are Protozoa that have been much studied by mycologists. The cellular slime moulds are so designated to contrast them with slime moulds that produce plasmodia. Two phyla are recognized, the Acrasiomycota and the Dictyosteliomycota. Members of the Acrasiomycota occur mainly on dung and decaying vegetation and will not be considered further. Members of the Dictyosteliomycota occur in soils throughout the world, especially in the surface soil and leaf litter of deciduous forests.
