Taxonomical identification: Glomus-type

First publication: Gelorini, V., Verbeken, A., van Geel, B., Cocqyt, C. and Vershuren, D. (2011) Modern non-pollen palynomorphs from East African lake sediments. Review of Palaeobotany and Palynology 164, 143–173

Description: Chlamydospores broadly ellipsoid, equilaterally one-celled, yellow, 72 × 57 μm, smooth, slightly thin-walled, with hypha-like attachment/appendix. This morphotype probably belongs to the mycorrhizal fungi, and may represent Glomus or a related tropical genus. It differs from the common Glomus chlamydospores by its distinctly ellipsoid shape and thinner wall.
