The AMF Distribution in India - A Checklist

Glomus pustulatum Koske, Friese, C. Walker & Dalpé (1986)

Glomus pustulatum is reported from 7 state(s) of India namely Uttarakhand*, West Bengal, Karnataka, Maharashtra, Andhra Pradesh, Madhya Pradesh and Kerala, GPS location for which is shown in map. Data can also be searched by location by clicking distribution map in menu checklist. A conclusion about their occurrence has been drawn on basis of culture based studies (bibliography given below). Availability of live culture of Glomus pustulatum can be checked at Centre for Mycorrhizal Culture Collection (CMCC, TERI). Original description of Glomus pustulatum is available at www.amf-phylogeny.com.
Taxonomically reliable and clean sequences spanning small subunit (SSU) rRNA, Internal transcribed spacer (ITS) and large subunit rRNA region isolated from live cultures of AM fungal spores of Glomus pustulatum have yet not been isolated
