Abstract

The structure of ‘sporocarps’ in Rhizophagus litchii is shown to correspond with the stelar anatomy of short lateral roots of Litchi sinensis. Samples of the ‘species’ from Hawaii were also found to contain vesicles, arbuscules, hyphae and coils of VA mycorrhizal fungi. The name R. litchii is considered to be of confused application. © 1989, British Mycological Society. All rights reserved.
