The AMF Distribution in India - A Checklist

Scutellospora pellucida (T.H. Nicolson & N. C. Schenck) C. Walker & F.E. Sanders (1986)


Basionyms and other popular names: Cetraspora pellucida Oehl, F.A. Souza & Sieverd. (2008) ≡ Gigaspora pellucida T.H. Nicolson & N. C. Schenck (1979)]
Scutellospora pellucida is reported from 4 state(s) of India namely Meghalaya, Maharashtra, Jammu & Kashmir and Uttarakhand*, 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 pellucida can be checked at Centre for Mycorrhizal Culture Collection (CMCC, TERI). Original description of Scutellospora pellucida 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 pellucida have yet not been isolated
