The first records of myxomycetes are reported from Lubang Island, Occidental Mindoro, Philippines. Specimens collected in the field and/or from moist chamber cultures prepared with samples of ground leaf litter and twigs yielded a total of 45 taxa, six of which are new to the Philippines. These are Arcyria globosa, Collaria rubens, Comatricha robusta, Craterium atrolucens, Lamproderma cacographicum, and Perichaena microspora. Thirty years after Reynolds (1981) had published a checklist of the myxomycetes of the Philip-pines, the total number of species now known from the country has been increased from 107 to 128, inclu-ding the present six new additions.
