May 2, 2017: The second field trip in Peru of the current phase of the Myxotropic project has just finished. 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. The unusually large amount of material and data collected during this expedition will provide the scientific community with unprecedented resources, including several new records or even new species to science.
