Myxomycetes Of Norfolk Island, South Pacific Ocean

  • A survey for myxomycetes (plasmodial slime moulds or myxogastrids) was carried out on Norfolk Island in June 2019. The overall objective was to collect both specimens that had fruited in the field under natural conditions as well as specimens appearing in moist chamber cultures prepared with samples of dead plant material collected on the island. However, only three species were recorded as field collections over a period of almost two weeks, so the primary focus of the survey was redirected to collecting samples for moist chamber cultures. Approxmately 120 samples of dead plant material collected from 21 different sampling sites on the island and used to prepare 356 moist chamber cultures yielded a total of 497 specimens. These specimens included at least 48 species in 18 genera. This brings the total number of species and genera now known from Norfolk Island to 55 and 19, respectively.
