3. COLLECTION DETAILS OF ILLUSTRATED SPECIMEN
Submerged wood samples were collected from Paoay Lake, Paoay, Ilocos Norte Province, in the Philippines on 6 January 2006 and 3 February 2007. Samples collected were placed in sterile plastic bags and returned to the laboratory in The University of Hong Kong. Samples were incubated in plastic boxes lined with moistened paper towels at room temperature (~25ºC) under normal light conditions and examined after 1-2 weeks for the presence of fungi, and then periodically over 6 months (Shenoy et al., 2005, 2006). The moistened paper towels were placed beneath the samples to maintain humidity in the box. Material supporting Paoayensis lignicola were air-dried and preserved as herbarium specimens.
