Abstract:  Bark collected from trees in 12 localities in West Turkey was used to establish 100 moist chamber cultures. The 116 Myxomycete specimens that emerged represented 30 species, none of which has been reported previously from Turkey, but almost all of which are known from adjacent countries. Three species could be determined to the genus only and possibly represent undescribed species. The morphological variation of some species is discussed, and the species composition is compared with that found by a similar method on plant material from North Europe and Gambia.
