Sclerocystis microcarpus

Sclerocystis microcarpus is reported from 2 state(s) of India namely Andhra Pradesh and Maharashtra, 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 Sclerocystis microcarpus can be checked at Centre for Mycorrhizal Culture Collection (CMCC, TERI). Original description of Sclerocystis microcarpus is available at www.amf-phylogeny.com.
