The AMF Distribution in India - A Checklist

Funneliformis caledonium Funneliformis caledonium (T.H. Nicolson & Gerd.) C. Walker & Schuessler (2010)


Basionyms and other popular names: Glomus caledonium Trappe & Gerd. [as 'caledonius'] (1974)] ≡ Endogone macrocarpa var. caledonia T.H. Nicolson & Gerd. (1968)]
Funneliformis caledonium is reported from 6 state(s) of India namely Andhra Pradesh, Goa, Karnataka, Meghalaya, Jammu & Kashmir and Madhya 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 Funneliformis caledonium can be checked at Centre for Mycorrhizal Culture Collection (CMCC, TERI). Original description of Funneliformis caledonium 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 Funneliformis caledonium have yet not been isolated
