Camino, M., G. Moreno & A. Castillo. Taxonomic revision of the myxomycetes from Cuba deposited in the Farlow Herbarium (USA). Mycotaxon 93: 379-400. 2005.

ABSTRACT: A critical revision of the myxomycetes from Cuba deposited presently in the Farlow Herbarium (FH) is presented. The total number of examined specimens is 83, of which 13 could not be determined to species. These specimens were gathered mainly during the 19th century by Charles Wright in the course of expeditions he made to this island. All the species are discussed and, in the case of records of taxonomic or chorological interest, they are described. The determinations are reinforced by studies of the spore ornamentation by SEM, using the critical point method. Micrographs of the spore ornamentation of species little studied by SEM or that are of particular interest for the island biota are included.

KEYWORDS: chorology, Myxomycota, taxonomy, Neotropical myxobiota, SEM
