trichomonad

any member of the protozoan order Trichomonadida (Zoomastigophora), in earlier classifications. In more modern classifications, the group is considered to be of kingdom-equivalent status. Trichomonads occur typically in the respiratory, reproductive and intestinal tracts of animals and some forms are pathogenic. Cells typically have four to six flagella.
