Ndiritu, George G., Katherine E. Winsett, Frederick W. Spiegel & Steven L. Stephenson. A checklist of African myxomycetes. Mycotaxon 107: 353–356. 2009.

ABSTRACT: A comprehensive checklist of the species of myxomycetes known from Africa does not exist, and the reported records are found in various sources scattered throughout the literature. In the study described herein, an effort was made to compile all known records of African myxomycetes from published articles, reports and databases. Our initial findings indicate that there are 294 species representing 49 genera reported from or known to occur in Africa. Of the 58 countries and territories on the entire continent, no records of myxomycetes apparently exist for 27 countries.

The complete checklist can be found on the Mycotaxon Regional Checklists page.

KEYWORDS: mycetozoans, slime molds, distribution, taxonomy
