The AMF Distribution in India - A Checklist

Funneliformis constrictum "Septoglomus constrictum (Trappe) Sieverd., G. A. Silva & Oehl (2011)


Basionyms and other popular names: Basionym: Glomus constrictum Trappe (1977) [as 'constrictus'] Synonym: Funneliformis constrictus C. Walker & A. Schüßler"
Funneliformis constrictum is reported from 8 state(s) of India namely Bihar, Goa, Kerala, Meghalaya, Karnataka, Rajasthan, Andhra 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 Funneliformis constrictum can be checked at Centre for Mycorrhizal Culture Collection (CMCC, TERI). Original description of Funneliformis constrictum 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 constrictum have yet not been isolated
