Abstract

The ascomycete Pulvinula constellatio was found to form competing ectomycorrhizal relationships with plants that had been inoculated with Tuber spp. and other edible ectomycorrhizal fungi. In order to be able to distinguish P. constellatio mycorrhizae from those of the Tuber spp., we determined the morphological and bio-molecular characteristics of P. constellatio. The complete sequence of the ITS regions was determined, in order to select specific primers. The ITS region was also studied using restriction fragment length polymorphism analyses with several restriction enzymes that allowed an unambiguous identification of the species.
