Iotti, Mirco, Mauro Marchetti, Enrico Bonuso & Alessandra Zambonelli. Morphological and molecular characterization of the mycorrhizas of Inocybe rufuloides and I. splendens. Mycotaxon 94: 75-84. 2005.

ABSTRACT: The mycorrhizas of Inocybe rufuloides on Pinus pinea and of Inocybe splendens on Ostrya carpinifolia were characterized by morphological and molecular methods. Molecular identification was performed by comparing the rDNA ITS sequences obtained from Inocybe fruiting bodies with those of the mycorrhizas collected from the same area. Morphological characterization was carried out by a simplified Agerer protocol. This study provides sets of characters which can be used in further studies for the identification of these two Inocybe species found contaminating Tuber infected plants in experimental truffières.

KEYWORDS: ectomycorrhizas, ribosomal DNA sequences, morphological description, truffle cultivation
