Thanks to those which sent us pdf-files or scanned pages, and to the publishers that gave us copyright clearance (see list at the end of the table).

We have been refused copyright clearance by, e.g., Springer and by the journals Nova Hedwigia and Botany (former Can. J. Bot.), and thus we cannot provide pdf files of the respective papers. In the meanwhile also some publications in Mycotaxon partly are not freely available by the authors. We would be happy to link to such papers from the table below, if hosted at your institutional servers.

Acaulospora cavernata

 

A culture, at first considered to be Acaulospora scrobiculata, was established from 5 spores from the UK, and registered as BEG33. All spores appeared to have ornamentation similar to A. scrobiculata but the spores produced now are predominantly similar to the type of A. cavernata. Because the type material of A. cavernata is not suitable for molecular study BEG33 was designated as an epitype for the species.

Acaulospora foveata

 

Molecular evidence from two INVAM cultures, CR315 and CR401A. The species description does not illustrate the full amount of variation in the spore ornamentation of the type material. The ornamentation illustrated for culture BR861 on the INVAM website is not entirely consistent with that of the type material for the species. It seems likely that ornamentation is somewhat variable.

Acaulospora paulinae

 

Compare with A. undulata. Species descriptions of A. undulata and A. paulinae are very similar. One of the differences that was considered important in separating the species was that A. undulata did not react in Melzer’s reagent. However, this reaction in members of Acaulospora varies with condition of the specimens, and Kaonongbua et al (2010) (see A. colliculosa) have indicated that reaction to this reagent in any case may not be a useful phylogenetic signal.

species of uncertain phylogenetic position

 

 

Acaulospora bireticulata

 

Probably a heterotypic synonym of A. elegans, which appears like A. bireticulata when using Nomarski differential interference microscopy.

F.M. Rothwell & Trappe (1979)

 

Acaulospora capsicula

 

Many similarities with A. laevis, but described as having a reaction to Melzer’s reagent.

Błaszk. (1990)

 

Acaulospora colossica

 

Similar to A. laevis, described as lacking a reaction to Melzer’s reagent.

Trappe & Gerd. (1974)

 

Acaulospora excavata

 

The ornamentation is of large deep cavities, leading to the suspicion that it belongs with such organisms as A. scrobiculata.

Błaszk. (1988)

 

Acaulospora myriocarpa

Probably belongs in Ambispora, but must remain in Acaulospora pending molecular or other evidence.

Acaulospora rugosa

 

 

J.B. Morton (1986)

 

Acaulospora splendida

 

Produces acaulosporoid spores, but they do not seem to share characteristics with other members of the genus. No molecular data available, thus the species is retained in its current genus.

Sieverd., Chaverri & I. Rojas (1988)

 

Acaulospora sporocarpia

   

S.M. Berch (1985)

 

Acaulospora taiwania

 

Very unlikely to be an Acaulospora species. In the species description, it is described as being produced in sporocarps. The illustrations of the species are of such poor quality that it is impossible to draw conclusions other than that it does not look much like an Acaulospora fungus. Type material reported to be lost.

H.T. Hu (1988)

 

Acaulospora thomii

 

Said to be fundamentally different from other species in the genus, and has been considered as a possible member of Archaeospora. One major consideration was the lack of reaction to Melzer’s reagent, but this is not unknown among the ornamented, small-spored species in Acaulospora. Until more is known recombining it within a different genus would be speculative.

Błaszk. (1988)

 

Acaulospora undulata

 

Compare with A. paulinae, see comments given for A. paulinae.

Sieverd. (1988)

 

Acaulospora walkeri

 

Known only from field collected material, this species is close in morphology to other species in the genus with small, smooth, yellow spores.

Inconsistent DNA sequence data for the type species, E. infrequens, do not provide any conclusive evidence of its phylogeny. Placement of this species is unclear. Morphologically, there seems little reason to maintain the genus, but clarification must await evidence. Phylogenetic and systematic position of Entrophosporaceae is unknown.

Was published under the name Rhizophagus tenuis and later transferred to the genus Glomus.

It has almost no similarities with any other fungus in the phylum.

This species was confounded by the erroneous synonymisation of Glomus epigaeum with G. versiforme. These species are not synonymous and G. epigaeum was placed in Diversispora, but the placing of G. versiforme is yet unknown.

S.M. Berch (1983)

 

Glomus viscosum

 

Although a rDNA sequence derived from a spore of this fungus clustered next to G. claroideum, it seems to be derived from a contaminant. The culture from which the molecular evidence came turned out later to also contain spores of G. claroideum like fungus and obviously was contaminated. The recent placement in a new genus thus was very unfortunate as it should be waited for evidence before erecting of a new genus based on one sequence.

Sclerocystis

 

back to top   This genus was described in 1873, but was united with Glomus (Almeida & Schenck 1990). We now separate it once more based on the molecular data, for two species (Redecker et al. 2000), and the phylogenetic placement basal to Rhizophagus. More evidence will be required before anything further can be concluded.

Was transferred to Endogone by Gerdemann & Trappe (1974), but from their description, it may be worthwhile to reconsider its position should it ever be possible to obtain molecular evidence.

Synonyms: Gigaspora calospora

As far as is known, although this is the type species of the genus, all the early cultures, including those from which the type was sampled, are lost. The re-description of the species (Koske & Walker 1986) was made from a culture established from within 75 km of the type location, and its identity was confirmed by the late Prof. T. Nicolson. It was registered as BEG32 and formally designated as an epitype.

Scutellospora nodosa

 

Defined from a field collection (Blaszkowski 1991), as far as is known without culturing or an ex-type culture available. Phylogenetic position anchored by a culture from the north of England, registered as BEG4.

Fuscutata heterogama

 

According to the concept of Oehl et al. (Mycotaxon 106: 344, 2008) this organism is not conspecific with Scutellospora heterogama (Dentiscutata heterogama in their concept) and was used as the type species for the genus Fuscutata, but this genus was later rejected by Morton & Msiska (2010). To the concept ot Oehl et al., most existing cultures formerly identified as S. heterogama should be represented by the proposed name Fuscutata heterogama. This was done without molecular evidence, although the 'ex-type culture' of Fuscutata heterogama was and is available. It is possible that Fuscutata heterogama in future will be a synonym, but because it is described as the type species of a genus we list it here awaiting further evidence.

The species description is such that it clearly is a synonym of S. cerradensis. Repeated attempts to obtain the type of Fuscutata trirubiginopa for examination have failed.
