Glomeromycota TAXONOMY

Please note: The list was updated May 2018, based on a recent project to summarize the current genera in the Glomeromycota. Note, that we currently update the species list, so some links below (to the genera) are not yet active.

We do not adopt the recently suggested systematics placing of AMF in the "Glomeromycotina". To our opinion the phylum level will eventually be resurrected, thus we stay with it. As names above the rank of family are not governed by priority in the Botanical Code, you are free to use whichever name you prefer, above family.

There were a number of questionable taxa published, but not for all of them formal action was taken (for discussions see, e.g., Redecker D, Schüßler A, Stockinger H, Stürmer SL, Morton JB, Walker C (2013) An evidence-based consensus for the classification of arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi (Glomeromycota). Mycorrhiza 23: 515-531 [doi: 10.1007/s00572-013-0486-y]; Schüßler A, Walker C (2010) The Glomeromycota. A species list with new families and new genera. A. Schüßler & C. Walker, Gloucester [full text PDF]; Morton JB, Msiska Z (2010) Phylogenies from genetic and morphological characters do not support a revision of Gigasporaceae (Glomeromycota) into four families and five genera. Mycorrhiza 20:483-496 [doi: 10.1007/s00572-010-0303-9].Bills and Morton 2015, Redecker et al. 2013, Schüßler and Walker 2010). We indicate some problems, below.
