The AMF Distribution in India - A Checklist

Scutellospora erythropus Koske & C. Walker (1984)

Scutellospora erythropus is reported from 3 state(s) of India namely Meghalaya, Andhra Pradesh and Jammu & Kashmir, 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 Scutellospora erythropus can be checked at Centre for Mycorrhizal Culture Collection (CMCC, TERI). Original description of Scutellospora erythropus 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 Scutellospora erythropus have yet not been isolated
