Introduction: The Acrasiales, or cellular slime molds, are not true molds at all. They are a unique group of organisms that exhibit characteristics of both the fungi and the protozoa. The cellular slime molds are more than a taxonomic enigma, however. One genus, Dictyostelium, has been extensively studied as a model of multicellular development.
