The false foot (pseudopod) extends from the amoeba. Then the main part of the amoeba flows into that pseudopod and the amoeba has changed its place. It belongs to the kingdom of protoctista.
Pseudopods can be classified into several varieties according to their appearance:
- Lobopodia are short and blunt in form, very typical of Amoebozoa.
- Filopodia are more slender and filiform with pointed ends.
- Reticulopodia, also known as reticulose pseudopods, are complex formations where individual pseudopods are blended together and form irregular nets.
