Phycomyces

Hello, I am practically sure that this fungus is Phycomyces. It has the typical large and dark sporangiophores of "Phyco". Furthermore, I think that it was found into a cave, or something like that, and Phycomyces is a classical inhabitant of caves. I am studying the natural diversity of this fungus in my thesis, and I am grateful if you could send me some samples of this new strain. My e-mail is lolapcc@us.es, you can write me here. Thank you, and congratulations for your descovery.
