The AMF Distribution in India - A Checklist

Sclerocystis taiwanensis C.G. Wu & Z.C. Chen (1987)


Basionyms and other popular names: Glomus taiwanense R.T. Almeida & N.C. Schenck (1990), Glomus taiwanense R.T. Almeida & N.C. Schenck ex Y.J. Yao (1995)]
Sclerocystis taiwanensis is reported from 4 state(s) of India namely Karnataka, Uttarakhand*, Goa 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 Sclerocystis taiwanensis can be checked at Centre for Mycorrhizal Culture Collection (CMCC, TERI). Original description of Sclerocystis taiwanensis 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 taiwanensis have yet not been isolated
