Abstract

The external morphology ofTricholoma matsutake/Pinus densiflora mycorrhizal lateral roots, collected from a Shiro in Tottori Prefecture, western Japan, was described in detail. Four distinct stages within a progressive developmental continum were recognized and color illustrations of each stage were presented.

Key words
