Cribraria violacea is a minute myxomycete which could be expected to possess a protoplasmodium similar to the plasmodia of other minute species such as Clastoderma debaryanum, Echinostelium minutum, and Licea parasitica. Observations reported here show that it differs from protoplasmodia previously described in forming a small network with a fanlike area at the advancing front, and in showing protoplasmic streaming which did not reverse its direction of flow during two 40-minute periods of continuous observation.
