Is the divison supposed to be named Sarcodines or rhizopda for the ones that used psuedopods to move like ameoba? I see different names so which one is usually common?

    Sarcodina is a principal group of the phylum Protista. It replaced the name Rhizopoda. They have the same meaning, just Sarcodina is a new terminology versus Rhizopoda.

    Hope this helps.
