To whomever it is who's looking for mycorrhizal fungi symbiotic with
Three genera recently associated with Spiranthes and Plantanthera are
Ceratorhiza, Moniliopsis, and Epulorhiza. Identifying fungal symbionts
in these relationships is a bit of a cunumdrum due to difficulty of
cultivating the fungus so that it produces a "fruiting body," upon which
so much classification is based. Try: Gill, D.E. 1996. The natural
population ecology of temperate terrestrials: Pink Lady's-Slippers,
Cypripedium acaule. In: C. Allen [ed.], Proceedings of the North
American Native Terestrial Orchid Propagation and Production Conference.
