Myxomycete records from Eagle Hill in Maine
Distribution, Ecology, field collections, moist chamber cultures, molds, plasmodial slime, spruce-fir forests
Specimens of myxomycetes collected during the course of a week-long seminar held at approximately the same time during four different years (2004, 2006, 2008 and 2012) provide a baseline of data on the assemblage of species associated with the forests of one small area of Maine. Seventy-three species belonging to 29 genera were recorded during the four years, and 17 of these were collected in at least three different years. Sixty-one of the 73 species were represented by specimens that had fruited in the field under natural conditions, but these were supplemented by a number of specimens obtained from moist chamber cultures.
