Licea metallica, a new myxomycete from Laos
A new sessile species of myxomycete in the genus Licea is described and illustrated. This new species (Licea metallica) appeared in moist chamber cultures on samples of bark collected from two different unidentified trees in Laos. It differs from all other species in the genus in having subglobose iridescent sporocarps with both a pale apical disc of refuse material and a cylindrical mound of refuse material at the base. The spores are reddish brown, totally smooth and characterized by a spore wall with a thinner area that takes up almost half the spore diameter. Micrographs of these and other relevant features of the new species are presented.
