This study of the Myxomycetes of Henry County is a continuation of the project started at Iowa Wesleyan College two years ago and continued last year. Our entire supply of material for study this year came from natural sources whereas in the past, part of the material has been collected from a moist chamber. The slime molds were, without exception, collected from moist decaying wood found in secluded shady places. All specimens were, after collection, stored in properly labeled match boxes, to be used for further examination. The microscope slides of glycerine mounts, used in classification of spores and capillitium, were labeled and kept for future reference.
