On this occasion Dr. Lado, Dr. Estrada-Torres, Dr. Cano and the students Iván García-Cunchillos and Italo Treviño, have been collecting samples of Myxomycetes for three productive weeks. The sampling trip covered the Andean plateau of the provinces of Ayacucho, Huancavelica and Junín, and specifically, the headwaters of the Mantaro river.
