Rapid assessment of myxomycete diversity in the Bicol Peninsula, Philippines
A myxomycete survey combining field collections and moist chamber cultures from seven collecting areas in the Bicol Peninsula (Philippines) yielded 57 species belonging to 18 genera. Of these, eight are reported as new records for the Philippines; Stemonaria fuscoides is noted as a first record for the Asian Paleotropics. The comparison of the seven collecting localities showed higher numbers of records from areas with lowland forest characterized of having either old growth forest or successional forest patches where there is more heterogeneity of plant communities. This study is the first comprehensive report of myxomycete distribution in the Bicol Peninsula.
