The AMF Distribution in India - A Checklist

Acaulospora foveata Trappe & Janos (1982)

Acaulospora foveata is reported from 6 state(s) of India namely Uttarakhand*, Karnataka, Jammu & Kashmir, Andhra Pradesh, Goa and Kerala, 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 foveata can be checked at Centre for Mycorrhizal Culture Collection (CMCC, TERI). Original description of Acaulospora foveata 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 Acaulospora foveata have yet not been isolated
