The core of this section of the Australian Faunal Directory is the various catalogues of Protozoa generously supplied to Australian Biological Resources Study by Prof. Peter O'Donoghue of Quseensland Museum. These include O'Donoghue (2010) Catalogue of free-living ciliates (Protozoa: Ciliophora) recorded from Australia; O'Donoghue (2010) Catalogue of testate amoebae (Protozoa)
recorded from Australia; O'Donoghue (2011) Catalogue of Protozoan parasites recorded in Australia; and a classification of free-living Ciliophora. Dr Brett and Mrs Moira Robinson contributed treatments of non-testate Amoebae.
