Genera

The Hartmannellidae are a family of amoebozoa,[2] usually found in soils. When active they tend to be roughly cylindrical in shape, with a single leading pseudopod and no subpseudopodia. This form somewhat resembles a slug and as such they are also called limax amoebae. Trees based on rRNA show the Hartmannellidae as usually defined are paraphyletic to the Amoebidae, which may adopt similar forms.
