It's an old paper but it may help in your quest for finding answers about
nuclear pores in protists.

      Franke, W. W. 1970. On the universality of nuclear pore complex
structure. Z. Zellforsch. 105:405-429.

This author also refers to a paper by Daniels et al. [Z. Zellforsch.
98:357-363] in which nuclear pores were described for Pelomyxa carolinensis.

I agree with Graham that a eukaryote with a nucleus but no nuclear pores is
most likely a DEAD eukaryote :-)
