We reported the occurrence of the myxomycete Stemonitis splendens on red mangrove,Rhizophora mangle. Although S. splendens was reported previously from Puerto Rico, its presence on R. mangle suggests that mangroves, although usually neglected as a potential substrate for myxomycetes, may support a larger assemblage of species than indicated by the few published records.
