Hi Francesco,

It is a beautufull video of a very strange organism. It belongs to a group of amoebae of uncertain affinities. They have been described by older authors long ago and their description is often unclear or unsufficient. One thing is sure, it is not a Dinamoeba. Because of the granules om the filopodia it could be Penardia mutabilis or an Arachnula. See my pictures at www.arcella.nl/penardia-mutabilis, but I am still working on this site.

Best wishes,

Ferry
