    • Rhizopoda
    • Sarcodina
  4. What is the alternate name for Flagellates
    Mastigophora
  5. Amoebae are so named due to
    Their psuedopodal motility

    • Flagellate class
    • "Its home is in the intestines"
  15. What is the difference between Trichomonas tenax and hominis
    • tenax is found in the oral cavity, hominis in the intestines
