Introduction: Dictyostelium is a genus of cellular slime mold which is important in developmental research. The first cellular slime mold to be discovered was Dictyostelium mucoroides. It was discovered by Brefeld in 1869. However, the cellular slime mold most widely used in developmental research today is Dictyostelium discoideum, discovered by Raper in 1935.
