The AMF Distribution in India - A Checklist

Acaulospora elegans Trappe & Gerd. (1974)

Acaulospora elegans is reported from 3 state(s) of India namely Goa, Kerala and Tamil Nadu, 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 elegans can be checked at Centre for Mycorrhizal Culture Collection (CMCC, TERI). Original description of Acaulospora elegans is available at www.amf-phylogeny.com.
