Myxomycetes are naturally occurring organisms with habitats from tropical to temperate area with preference for humid and diverse ecosystems. Yet, an association of myxomycetes - sweet potato in Romania, on sandy soils has been detected in 2020. Sweet potatoes are cultivated at Dabuleni Research Station in mixture of forest top soil, sand and peat under greenhouse conditions. Relative humidity and temperatures are high throughout the season with highest values at the end of summer, favouring myxomycetes organism to complete its life cycle. Several stages of plasmodium and sporangia were observed in the field. The crop was not affected by the colonization of myxomycetes. Morphological identification lead to a species of Stemonitidales. This is the first report in Romania of myxomycetes-crop association.
