12 protostelid (microscopic slime mold) species were found in 15 samples of aquatic and terrestrial litter taken from northeast German ponds, 90% of species (including all of the most common) being found in both types of litter. Terrestrial litter contained more protostelids (14% of cultures) than aquatic litter (12%), and the water column contained none.
