Ex : Amoeba, Arcella.

Ex : Euglypha
 
c) Reticulopodia : These are filamentous structures, of ectoplasm which branch and anastomose to form a complex network.
Ex : Polystomelia
 
d) Axopodia : The axopodia or actinopodia are long, stiff with pointed distal ends. Each axopodium consists of an enveloping sheath of cytoplasm around a central axial rod.
Ex : Actinophrys
