The heterolobosean protozoa species "Acrasis rosea" Olive & Stoian
The heterolobosean protozoa species Acrasis rosea Olive & Stoian
Scientific classification e
Domain: Eukaryota
(unranked): Discoba
Superphylum: Discicristata

Discicristata is a proposed eukaryotic clade.

It consists of Euglenozoa plus Percolozoa.[1]

It was proposed that Discicristata plus Cercozoa yielded Cabozoa.[2] Another proposal is to group Discicristata with Jakobida into Discoba superphylum.[3]
