Abstract: The taxonomic status of Physarum pezizoideum (Jungh.) Pavill. & Lagarde var. pezizoideum and var. microsporum M. L. Farr is re-examined. Checking of the type material of the species showed that var. microsporum is a synonym of var. pezizoideum, while var. pezizoideum sensu Farr belongs to a distinct, new species, described as Badhamia gigantospora Ukkola & Hark. (type from Tanzania).
