Dear Colleagues,

     An interactive  image-based  key   to   gymnamoebae   (Rhizopoda,
Gymnamoebia) is now availiable via internet on the following address:
     Current version of the key includes data  on  all  systematically
valid  species of the family Thecamoebidae and is illustrated with 240
microphotographs,  TEM photographs and line drawings. Original species
descriptions  and  references to all corresponding literature complete
the information on every species.
     This original  key  is  elaborated  basing  on  newly   developed
"Conception of the morphotypes of gymnamoebae" (Smirnov A.V. & Goodkov
A.V.  Illustrated  list  of  the  basic  morphotypes  of  gymnamoebae.
European Journal of Protistology, 1998, in press).
     This key will permanently exist in  the  Internet.  It  could  be
reffered in publications as a source of identification, if necessary.
     The key is organized  as  a  system  of  HTML-pages  guided  with
embedded  Java-Script  scenarious and could be accessed using Netscape
Navigator 3.0 or above. It is very simple in use. There is an extended
help  system,  which  will  introduce  you  into  the organisation and
operation of the key.
     The elaboration  of  the  current  version was supported with the
RBFR grant 96-04-50858.
