The AMF Distribution in India - A Checklist

Ambispora appendicula (Spain, Sieverd. & N.C. Schenck) C. Walker (2008)


Basionyms and other popular names: Appendicispora appendicula Spain, Oehl & Sieverd. (2006) ≡ Paracaulospora appendicula S.P. Gautam & U.S. Patel (2007) ≡ Acaulospora appendicula
Ambispora appendicula is reported from 5 state(s) of India namely Andhra Pradesh, Maharashtra, Kerala, Karnataka and Goa, 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 Ambispora appendicula can be checked at Centre for Mycorrhizal Culture Collection (CMCC, TERI). Original description of Ambispora appendicula 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 Ambispora appendicula have yet not been isolated
