The AMF Distribution in India - A Checklist

Sclerocystis sinuosa Gerd. & B.K. Bakshi (1976)


Basionyms and other popular names: Glomus sinuosum R.T. Almeida & N.C. Schenck (1990), S. pakistanica,
Sclerocystis sinuosa is reported from 7 state(s) of India namely Tamil Nadu, Uttarakhand*, Meghalaya, Karnataka, Maharashtra, Goa and Andhra Pradesh, 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 sinuosa can be checked at Centre for Mycorrhizal Culture Collection (CMCC, TERI). Original description of Sclerocystis sinuosa 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 Sclerocystis sinuosa have yet not been isolated
