The dictyostelids are a group of cellular slime molds, or social amoebae, which
belong to the amoebozoa supergroup of eukaryotes that form a sister clade to the
fungi and animals. Under normal growth conditions the dictyostelids take the
individual amoeba form, but under starvation they from multicellular organisms.
