Ten years ago, the authors, while working at the University of Iowa Lakeside Laboratory at Lake Okoboji, compiled a list of Protozoa studied that summer. It was felt such a list could be enlarged upon and become a useful reference for workers in the field of Protozoology. As Protozoa have been identified we have added species from the vicinities of Lakeside Laboratory, Des Moines and Iowa City. Most of these were free living, but we have also included some parasitic forms. In addition we have made some attempt to include those mentioned in readily accessible literature, but no attempt has been made to make an exhaustive survey. We intend to supplement this list with additional forms as they are revealed by an intensive search of published material. We believe that this list is sufficiently complete to be of considerable value in its present form.
