Abstract:  Finnish research on Myxomycetes is briefly reviewed, and an annotated check-list is given of all the names by which the Myxomycetes are listed in the Finnish literature, with references to the biological provices where the species have been found. Special attention is paid to the identity of the species described by P. A. Karsten and W. Nylander from Finland. Diderma simplex (Schroeter) G. Lister is reported as new to Finland.
At present the Finnish herbaria contain material of 132 species of Myxomycetes from Finland. Fourteen further species are mentioned in the literature, but no proper specimens could be traced.
