Cribraria cancellata

"Even though nature has given up a great deal of its secrets here of late to our probing into the genomes of things, it still amazes me how information is given, taken, and processed by living things to develop the morphologies that we often observe…"

"How unusual, at least to me it is anyway.  I need to begin looking more closely at things."

"Hello again David,  It's always been thought that slime mould species are cosmopolitan, although there has probably not been enough research in some places (especially Australia) to confirm this. I know a couple of species, including…"

"Hi David,  The 'fuzz' that first appeared in your moist chamber is fungal growth and definitely not a plasmodium. I've had a quick look at Les Myxomycetes (French text by Poulain et al) and your 'blackberry'…"

"Hi Steve, Yes, moist chamber technique would be the best way to introduce students to species other than P. polycephalum. I tried it once with almost immediate results. (I live in a forest in northern Tasmania and have access to a rich array of…"

Profile Information

Name
Sarah Lloyd
What is your interest in slime moulds? (we need to know you're not a bot or spamster)
It's always exciting to find active plasmodia in the field and I check them regularly in eager anticipation of finding and identifying their fruiting bodies. Some form exquisite sporangia but other seem to retreat into the log or other substrate never to be seen again.
I have had a life-long interest in birds and a more recent interest in plants, fungi, invertebrates and just about every aspect of the natural world. For the past seven years I have been studying slime moulds in a tall wet eucalypt forest in northern Tasmania (Australia) and have collected over 120 species - all within one kilometer of my home.
In 2014 I published "Where the slime mould creeps - the fascinating world of Myxomycetes". There's more information on my website:

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 book looks very good. I don't have a copy - it's quite expensive but looks like it could be worth the investment.

Your collections are fantastic. Unfortunately I have quite a few other responsibilities at the moment which mean I am in the field less than I would like.

Kind regards,

John

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 my email address.

Kind regards,

John

P.S.The link above in your profile needs a " https//:" removing by the way.
