Abstract:Much of Southeast Asia remains understudied for myxomycetes ( plasmodial
slime molds or myxogastrids). This survey of myxomycetes was carried
out at 12 study sites throughout Singapore during March 2009. Sporocarps that
developed in moist-chamber cultures of bark, forest floor litter, and aerial litter
were used to supplement field collections. In addition, a series of samples of
various types of plant litter collected from one other study site during the summer
of 2004 was processed for myxomycetes. Collectively, these efforts yielded
76 species of myxomycetes in 26 genera. Thirty-six species are new records for
Singapore. The latter includes two previously unpublished records along with
one collection of Didymium and one collection of Trichia that could not be assigned
to any known species.
