Two species of amoeba, Endolimax leptocoridis and Entamoeba polypodia from the alimentary canal of the box elder bug, Leptocoris trivittatus Say, are described. In the case of the former some observations are made on peculiar nuclear changes which take place during excystment and are suggestive of steps preceding a sexual process.
