Mycorrhizal synthesis and basidioma primordium formation between Abies guatemalensis and Laccaria bicolor
This paper describes the mycorrhizal synthesis between the endangered Abies guatemalensis and the Guatemalan strain Chi 0.97 of Laccaria bicolor. This is the first report of a mycorrhiza obtained on this plant species by inoculation. The synthesis was carried out under controlled conditions using plastic containers with sterile peat moss-vermiculite substrate and mycelial inoculum. A description of the morphology and anatomy of the mycorrhizae is given. They were simple or monopodial-pinnate, pale orange with violet emanating hyphae, plectenchymatous mantle and "Palmetti"-like hyphae. Primordia with stipe and pileus were observed at the bottom of containers near the root system.
