Summary: 
Figure 1. Generalized life cycle in the myxomycetes.A. Group of fruiting bodies. B. Spore. C. A protoplast emerges from the spore. D. The protoplast can take the form of an amoeba (left) or a flagellated cell (right) during the first trophic stage (the term ‘amoeboflagellate’ applies to both forms). E. Under dry conditions or in the absence of food, an amoeboflagellate can form a microcyst, or resting stage. F. Compatible amoeboflagellates fuse to form a zygote. G. Zygote. H. The nucleus of the zygote divides by mitosis and each subsequent nucleus also divides without being followed by cytokinesis, thus producing a single large cell, the plasmodium. I. The plasmodium, which represents the second trophic stage in the life cycle. J. Under adverse conditions, the plasmodium can form the second type of resting stage found in myxomycetes, the sclerotium. K–L. Fruiting bodies develop from the plasmodium. During fruiting body formation, spores are produced.
