A new species of Helicocephalum from Poland

Alicja A. Borowska


The genus Helicocephalum was established by Thaxter (1891) for H. sarcophilum. Drechsler (1934, 1943) added two more species, H. oligosporum and H. diplosporium. Kitz and Embree (1989) discribed H. corniculatum. The author describes and illustrates the new species which was discovered on forest soil very close to the feed-box for roe-deers and cervines.
