Members of the phylum Sarcodina, or sarcodines, move via temprorary cytoplasmic projections known as pseudopods (SOO-doh-pahdz). Sarcodines are animallike protists that use pseudopods for feeding and movement. The most common known sarcodines are the amoebas, which are flexible, active cells with thick pseudopods that extend out of the central mass of the cell.
