is a small single-celled Ministeria vibrans eukaryote which feeds on bacteria. Although it is an opisthokont, it seems not to fit in any of the established opisthokont lineages such as choanoflagellates or animals. It might form a group with [1 ] , another opisthokont of uncertain placement. Capsaspora It is the only known [2 ] opisthokont lineage which does not exhibit amoeboid cells or flagellated cells. [3 ]
