While out photographing things in our local forest, I occasionally came across these rather strange organisms. I had no idea what they were until someone e-mailed me and suggested that they were probably slime moulds (myxomycetes).

Since then, I have obtained a few reference books and photographed many more. The following pages contain general information on myxomycetes and photographs of many of the New Zealand species including species not previously known to occur here.
