"Only joking regarding "not fitting the descriptions" - it's a useful excuse I can use when I can't identify something ;) I use Poulain and also Ing (which has a good key but not good illustrations). Nannenga-Bremekamp's…"

"Hi John,  Interesting that your myxos also 'don't quite fit published descriptions'. What references do you use? I have Poulain et al, Neubert et al (but I don't speak German) and find Nannenga-Bremekamp's A Guide to…"

"Thank you Sarah - myxos sometimes "don't quite fit their published descriptions" here either! Your website looks great - I have come across it before. I have plans to set up a new site for myxos here in the near future. I will pm you…"

Yes, 'not quite fitting published descriptions' is a good excuse!

I'm very impressed by your images of spores with the scale bar. I knew nothing about microscopy before I started working on myxos and I still have much to learn.

Hi John, 

Interesting that your myxos also 'don't quite fit published descriptions'. What references do you use? I have Poulain et al, Neubert et al (but I don't speak German) and find Nannenga-Bremekamp's A Guide to temperate myxomycetes very useful because of its extensive descriptions, information about ecological niches and descriptions of similar looking species. Stephenson's Myxos of New Zealand is also useful because of its southern hemisphere focus.

Hi John, 

Thanks for 'liking' my various photos. I checked out your link to the NE Fungus study group and interested to see the variety of myxos you find in the UK. I find some of the same species in Tasmania but a few (e.g. Cribraria violacea)  I have never seen. Unfortunately there is still not a field guide to myxos in Australia so I'm using northern hemisphere texts. Apparently Aus and NZ myxos 'don't quite fit published descriptions', which makes identification difficult in many cases. I'll persevere!

best wishes, Sarah
