Description The molecular phylogeny of Flabellula Schaeffer, 1926 has been updated by analysing 18S rRNA and actin gene sequences of 19 new strains collected and characterised by the authors over the past ten years. The genus Flabellula Schaeffer, 1926 (Amoebozoa: Leptomyxida) is a taxon in which species delineation based on morphological data by themselves is insufficient or even misleading. The description of two novel species, F. schaefferi n. sp. and F. sawyeri n. sp., is justified by the congruence of morphological data with 18S rRNA and actin gene sequence phylogenies, in-silico secondary structure prediction of the V2 region in the 18S rRNA, and by recognition of species-specific sequential motifs within this region.
