ABSTRACT

Material from the lower Miocene Heath Formation in Perú was re-examined for fungal content. Ninety-four taxa were encountered during the preliminary survey of the slides. These taxa represent a vibrant community of parasites, saprophytes and mycorrhizae present in terrestrial regions adjacent to the Heath Formation depocentre. This paper provides an overview of the taxa encountered and resolves nomenclatural problems for seven taxa: Diporotheca doniana sp. nov., Diporotheca gorda sp. nov., Monoporisporites minionoides sp. nov., Parapotomyces maydiformis gen. et sp. nov., Pluricellaesporites woodianus sp. nov., Verrudisporonites elsikianus gen. et sp. nov. and Zopfiella neogenica sp. nov.
