In this study, arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi (AMF) were isolated and cultivated from rhizospheres of various plants in Korea. Five species belonging to four genus were identified based on spore morphology and 18S rDNA sequence analysis: Acaulospora cavernata Claroideoglomus luteum, Diversispora aurantium, D. trimurales, Rhizophagus irregularis. These fungal species have not been cultivated or reported to date in Korea, Morphological description and phylogenetic analysis for each species were presented. This result could be useful for research of AMF diversity in Korea.
