Fig. 98 (next page). A. Bøtø Plantage is a relatively young pine forest that until recently was a commercial plantation. Now, however, it has been bought by a Danish nature foundation, which aims to do as much for Danish biodiversity as possible. This, among other things, meant that large parts of the plantation have been thinned to increase sun exposure, as shown in the picture here. The experienced collector in the picture is Henning Liljehult, who unfortunately did not catch any infected hosts in this situation. By sifting slightly damp moss and leaves around tree trunks Laboulbenia argutoris (on Pterostichus diligens), L. eubradycelli (on Bradycellus harpalinus), L. metableti (on Syntomus foveatus), and Cryptandromyces elegans on (Brachygluta fossulata) were collected. (Photograph Jan Pedersen). B. This shallow pond in a gravel pit near Bårse turned out to accommodate some very exciting Laboulbeniales which were all found by sifting very wet moss and plant debris along the sun-exposed shore. Most notable was the finding of Tavaresiella hebri (on Hebrus ruficeps), but also Zodiomyces vorticellarius (on Helochares obscurus) and Hydrophilomyces coneglianensis (on Laccobius minutus) could be found. (Photograph: Andrea Schomann). C. The locality Gammel Kalvehave does not look like much but has been shown to contain a very high species diversity of Laboulbeniales, with no less than 27 species found so far. All specimens were found either by sifting semi-fresh debris from the reeds standing in brackish water (immediately behind JP) – or by sifting the old mouldy garden compost in the foreground. Here it is first and foremost the finding of Kainomyces isomali (on Gyrohypnus angustatus) that should be highlighted, as this species was not known from Europe before. Of the other Laboulbeniales species, the following should also be mentioned: Euzodiomyces lathrobii (on Lathrobium longulum), Siemaszkoa fennica (on Ptenidium laevigatum), S. ptenidii (on Ptenidium fuscicorne), Symplectromyces vulgaris (on Quedius mesomelinus), Misgomyces dyschirii (on Dyschirius globosus), Ecteinomyces trichopterophilus (on Acrotrichis montandonii), Laboulbenia argutoris (on Pterostichus diligens and P. strenuus), L. clivinalis (on Clivina fossor), L. coneglianensis (on Anisodactylus binotatus), L. curtipes (on Bembidion assimile and B. varium), L. eubradycelli (on Trichocellus placidus), L. fasciculata (on Patrobus atrorufus and Pterostichus rhaeticus), L. flagellata (on Agonum fuliginosum, A. thoreyi, Oxypselaphus obscurus and Pterostichus vernalis), L. littoralis (on Cafius xantholoma), L. luxurians (on Bembidion varium), L. metableti (on Syntomus foveatus), L. murmanica (on Bembidion assimile), L. pedicellata (on Bembidion assimile, B. mannerheimii and Dyschirius globosus), L. vulgaris (on Bembidion guttula and B. tetracolum), Distolomyces forficulae (on Forficula auricularia), Peyritschiella furcifera (on Philonthus debilis), P. nigrescens (on Philonthus debilis), P. oxyteli (on Anotylus rugosus), Cantharomyces orientalis (on Carpelimus corticinus, C. elongatulus and C. foveolatus), Monoicomyces britannicus (on Acrotona pseudotenera and Atheta longicornis), and M. fragilis (on Dinaraea angustula and Ocalea picata). (Photograph: Andrea Schomann). D. Gedser Odde, the southernmost point in Denmark, where Laboulbenia lecoareri (on Trechoblemus micros), L. metableti (on Syntomus foveatus), L. vulgaris (on Bembidion bruxellense), Peyritschiella vulgata (on Philonthus quisquiliarius), and Monoicomyces validus (on Aleochara grisea) were collected by sifting rotten seaweed at the base of the coastal soft clay cliff. (Photograph: Andrea Schomann). E. The heath land of Heatherhill contains some very exciting old peat bog water holes (can be seen on the right in the picture). By netting in the dense vegetation in the shallows of these sun-exposed water holes Autoicomyces aquatilis and A. humilis (on Hydrochus crenatus), Eusynaptomyces enochri (on Enochrus coarctatus), Zodiomyces vorticellarius (on Helochares obscurus), Chitonomyces bidessarius (on Hygrotus inaequalis), and Hydraeomyces halipli (on Haliplus ruficollis) were found.
