Adamonyte, Grazina . Trichia papillata, a new coprophilous myxomycete species. Mycotaxon 87: 379 - 384. 2003.

ABSTRACT: A new species, Trichia papillata, is described on the basis of collections from Lithuania. It is characterised by angular peridial plates with a central papilla, double-crested spirals on the elaters, and yellow spore mass. T. papillata was obtained from moist chamber cultures of hare (Lepus sp.) and roe deer (Capreolus capreolus) dung collected in the southern Lithuania. The species is illustrated with SEM photographs and compared with other stalked yellow-spored Trichia species with areolate peridia.
