Suggestions for particularly cool bacteria and fungi

Post by guylo » Sun Oct 28, 2012 10:56 am


I run a small magazine called Eye Ball ( and we're hoping to produce a deck of cards with the four suits representing animals, plants, bacteria and fungi. Each card within those suits will be a particularly interesting species and a small book will be provided giving more information and explaining the choices.

I have lots of ideas for the animal and plants but am coming up a bit short with the bacteria and fungi. I have quite a few ideas for species to include but I am not a microbiologist and I feel I am currently doing bacteria and fungi a disservice.

So I wondered if I could ask for some ideas for species you find particularly interesting, exciting or just plain cool?

Thank you,

Thats seems very good Job. If you could add yeast species in your magazine. That will be really helpful. Because i havn't find the easy biochemical methods for detection of yeasts or about the different types of yeasts. On the other hand a lots of information about fungi and bacteria are already available in many books and sites.
