quote from Young et al. 2014
Recently there has been a suggestion that Neoparamoeba should become a junior synonym of Paramoeba (see Feehan et al. 2013). However, the same evidence was presented before but it was concluded that the proposed name change would be premature including insufficient taxon sampling for scale-bearing Paramoeba (see Kudryavtsev et al. 2011). Furthermore, SSU rDNA has been found to be inadequate for amoebae that share very few differentiating morphological features (Nassonova et al. 2010). Microscales are likely to be inappropriate for separating the two genera (Neoparamoeba andParamoeba) but untilmore scaled amoebae are sequenced and genes other than SSU rDNA are investigated it is too premature to disrupt currently used nomenclature.
