The AMF Distribution in India - A Checklist

Claroideoglomus etunicatum Claroideoglomus etunicatum (W.N. Becker & Gerd.) C. Walker & Schuessler (2010) ≡ Glomus etunicatum W.N. Becker & Gerd. (1977) [as 'etunicatus']

Claroideoglomus etunicatum is reported from 10 state(s) of India namely Madhya Pradesh, Madhya Pradesh, Goa, Maharashtra, Meghalaya, Karnataka, Jammu & Kashmir, Tamil Nadu, Uttarakhand* and Andhra Pradesh, 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 Claroideoglomus etunicatum can be checked at Centre for Mycorrhizal Culture Collection (CMCC, TERI). Original description of Claroideoglomus etunicatum 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 Claroideoglomus etunicatum have yet not been isolated
