Ambispora gerdemannii (S.L. Rose, B.A. Daniels & Trappe) C. Walker, Vestberg & Schuessler (2007)

Basionyms and other popular names: Appendicispora gerdemannii Spain, Oehl & Sieverd. (2006), ≡ Archaeospora gerdemannii J.B. Morton & D. Redecker (2001) ≡ Glomus gerdemannii S.L. Rose, B.A.S.L. Rose, B.A. Daniels & Trappe (1979)]
Ambispora gerdemannii is reported from 3 state(s) of India namely Karnataka, Uttarakhand* and Haryana, 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 Ambispora gerdemannii can be checked at Centre for Mycorrhizal Culture Collection (CMCC, TERI). Original description of Ambispora gerdemannii is available at
