The AMF Distribution in India - A Checklist

Acaulospora bireticulata F.M. Rothwell & Trappe (1979)


Basionyms and other popular names: A. elegans]
Acaulospora bireticulata is reported from 10 state(s) of India namely Karnataka, Maharashtra, Tamil Nadu, Kerala, Goa, Andhra Pradesh, West Bengal, Tamil Nadu, Madhya Pradesh 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 Acaulospora bireticulata can be checked at Centre for Mycorrhizal Culture Collection (CMCC, TERI). Original description of Acaulospora bireticulata 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 Acaulospora bireticulata have yet not been isolated
