Hi Michael,

According to the Preamble to the Vienna Code (2006), available at http://ibot.sav.sk/icbn/main.htm, slim mo[u]lds are still treated as plants for nomenclatural purposes, in common with a small range of other groups:
...
"7.  The rules and recommendations apply to all organisms traditionally treated as plants, whether fossil or non-fossil, e.g. blue-green algae (Cyanobacteria); fungi, including chytrids, oomycetes, and slime moulds; photosynthetic protists and taxonomically related non-photosynthetic groups."
...

Regards - Tony Rees

Now that we know slime molds are amoebae, which Code governs their
nomenclature?
