The AMF Distribution in India - A Checklist

Paraglomus occultum (C. Walker) J.B. Morton & D. Redecker (2001)


Basionyms and other popular names: Glomus occultum C. Walker (1982)]
Paraglomus occultum is reported from 4 state(s) of India namely West Bengal, Karnataka, Madhya Pradesh and Tamil Nadu, 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 Paraglomus occultum can be checked at Centre for Mycorrhizal Culture Collection (CMCC, TERI). Original description of Paraglomus occultum 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 Paraglomus occultum have yet not been isolated
