The Slime Mould Collection - UK and Ireland : An evolving COLLECTION of 919 SLIME MOULDS . . There is an issue with spelling Myxogastria or Myxoga

An evolving COLLECTION of 919 SLIME MOULDS

.
.
There is an issue with spelling Myxogastria or Myxogastrea
Google favours Myxogastria, disfavours Myxogastrea. iSpot is tuther way' round.
.
In iSpotZA all the Slimes are MyxogastRIA (and grouped Other Organisms)
https://www.ispotnature.org/communities/southern-africa/species-dictionary/199330/myxogastria
.
Despite the record here, Slime Moulds, in general are never going to be easy to ID to species, as almost all require either an expert opinion or evidence from Microscopy.
.
There WERE 9 Observations of Myxogastria in the UK Community - were not in the Collection but most have been fixed
844 MyxogastREA
Amoebozoa has 888
But where the ID is specifically Amoebozoa, they become Other Organisms and yet are still collected as Slime Moulds.
.
In the Amoebozoa are the Protostelea - they may not strictly be slime moulds.
See a gorgeous one (of 33) here https://www.ispotnature.org/communities/uk-and-ireland/view/observation/682518/unidentified-slime-mould
Wiki says https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Protosteliales

Confused?

.
There are a number (maybe 50) observations of MYXOMYCETES here - all need a modified IDs and Banner Shifts
https://www.ispotnature.org/communities/uk-and-ireland/species-dictionary/NHMSYS0001490487/myxomycetes/observations
Myxomycetes do NOT to appear in the project, as it does not appear in the Myxo Taxonomy Tree. iSpot's reaction to a search for Myxomycetes is flawed, so each of those IDs need to be changed, perhaps to Myxogastrea until a better ID is given
They are all ABSENT from this collection
I am adding IDs or leaving comments - PLEASE HELP
SEE BELOW.
.
The next branch above in the Tree (Amoebozoa) collects all the 44 (or 33) Protostelea (which are not Myxogastrea) hence my project Filter

This below is a VERY nice sub collection - please look

https://www.ispotnature.org/communities/uk-and-ireland/species-dictionary/NHMSYS0020959511/protostelea/observations
.
.
And so there might be a total of 940 Slime-mould observations in iSpot. Can we bring them all together?

WIKI - "Myxogastria/Myxogastrea (myxogastrids, ICZN) or Myxomycetes (ICBN),[1] is a class of slime molds that contains 5 orders, 14 families, 62 genera and 888 species. They are colloquially known as the plasmodial or acellular slime moulds."
.
"Analysis of DNA sequences has now shown clearly that all these groups are evolutionarily distinct from one another, and also distinct from the fungi."
And so they can be regarded as separate kingdoms of organisms
