Revision of the genus Licea (Myxomycetes) in Poland
Diversity and distribution of the Licea species in Poland is revised based on literature data and new records. Sixty-five specimens found in the field were examined representing 11 species and one unassigned morphotype (Licea sp). Six species: Licea biforis, L. castanea, L. clarkii, L. cf. pedicellata, L. poculiformis and L. pygmaea are reported for the first time from Poland. Illustrations of macroscopic and microscopic characters of each species are provided. A key to the Licea species occurring in Poland is also included. Several specimens were collected on the bark of orchard apple trees that seems to be a favourable substrate for Licea species. Finally, phenology of the Polish field records indicates that the Licea sporophores occur all over the year.
