Lobose gymnamoebae (representatives of the subclass Gymnamoebia Haeckel, 1862, class Lobosea Carpenter, 1861) inhabit almost all water and soil biotopes. However, because of difficulties in the species identification, fauna of these protists in many areas, including Ukraine, is almost unstudied till now. In a few papers from XIX—XX centuries there are scant fragmentary data on gymnamoebae found in this region (Stepanov, 1885; Vysotskiy, 1885; Pereyaslavtseva, 1886; Butchinskiy, 1897; Dobrovlyanskiy, 1914; Krasheninnikov, 1925; Fadeev, 1929). The works of M. P. Bozhko (1936, 1937) on soil gymnamoebae with 19 recorded species of these protists also worth to be mentioned (cited by Lepinis et al., 1973). In our previous studies we found 10 species of gymnamoebae (Patsuyk, 2010). In general, only 22 species are mentioned for Ukraine in literature. It is absolutely clear that representatives of the subclass Gymnamoebia need special comprehensive study using the up-to-date research methods applied for amoeboid organisms.
