Fig. 100 (next page). A. "Nordbredden af Skarresø" is a sun-exposed grazed meadow and the type locality of Euphoriomyces smicri (on Smicrus filicornis), which was sifted from the semi-dry, mouldy and rotten straw that can be seen on the upper left corner of the picture, together with Rhachomyces philonthinus (on Philonthus varians), Laboulbenia flagellata (on Agonum muelleri, Oxypselaphus obscurus, and Pterostichus vernalis), L. vulgaris (on Bembidion biguttatum), and Peyritschiella oxyteli (on Anotylus rugosus). JP is seen here (to the right) in good company. (Photograph: Andrea Schomann). B. In this glorious pile of horse manure close to the small village Skaerød JP found Peyritschiella hybrida (on Philonthus discoideus) which so far is the only one known Danish locality for this species. Also, Siemaszkoa fennica (on Ptenidium pusillum), Ecteinomyces trichopterophilus (on Acrotrichis grandicollis), and Dioicomyces anthici (on Omonadus formicarius) were sifted from the same fermenting warm and mouldy horse dung heap. (Photograph: Andrea Schomann). C. The small island of Sprogø between Zealand and Funen surprisingly housed an unknown species of laboulbeniales and thus became the type locality of Monoicomyces validus Santam. sp. nov. (on Atheta vestita). It was sifted from rotten seaweed on the stony seashore together with Laboulbenia giardii (on Dicheirotrichus gustavii), L. littoralis (on Cafius xantholoma) and L. pedicellata (on Bembidion normannum). Under stones on sandy ground in the intertidal zone Laboulbenia lichtensteinii (on Cillenus lateralis) was found. (Photograph: Andrea Schomann). D. "Sønderstrand på Rømø" is often exposed to major floods several times a year, and by sifting semi-fresh flood debris in this dune area Laboulbenia argutoris (on Pterostichus diligens), L. eubradycelli (on Bradycellus harpalinus), L. flagellata (on Agonum marginatum), L. lichtensteinii (on Cillenus lateralis), L. vulgaris (on Bembidion assimile), and Haplomyces texanus (on Bledius diota) were found. (Photograph: Andrea Schomann). E. Tofte Skov is one of the few localities in Denmark where there is almost untouched nature with many different habitats. As can be seen here in the picture (taken at "Bøgebakken" in Tofte Skov) nature is allowed to unfold completely on its own terms. By sifting bark and fungi from old beech trees Siemaszkoa ramificans (on Ptenidium turgidum) and Stichomyces conosomatis (on Sepedophilus testaceus) were collected, and by sifting leaf litter and moss in the forest floor or using pitfall traps Rhachomyces furcatus (on Othius subuliformis), Laboulbenia eubradycelli (on Bradycellus harpalinus and B. csikii), L. flagellata (on Platynus assimilis and Agonum fuliginosum), L. notiophili (on Notiophilus biguttatus, N. germinyi and N. palustris), and Corethromyces stilici Thaxt. (on Rugilus rufipes) were found. Most notable was the finding of Monoicomyces drusillae (on Drusilla canaliculata) in a pitfall trap. So far it is the only known locality in Denmark for this species. (Photograph: Andrea Schomann). F. In the light-open untouched forest swamps in Tofte Skov, such as here in "Engskoven", Rhachomyces canariensis and Laboulbenia vulgaris (on Epaphius secalis and Trechus obtusus) can be found by sifting moist leaf litter and moss. In the open water surfaces Helodiomyces elegans (on Dryops auriculatus) can be found. (Photograph: Andrea Schomann).
