Glossary Term: Ectomycorrhizal

The mycelia of mycorrhizal mushrooms can form an exterior sheath covering the roots of plants. The sheath is called ectomycorrhizal. When the mycelia continues to develop and invades the interior root cells of host plants they are called endomycorrhizal. Ectomycorrhizal mushrooms include some species of Laccaria, Lyophyllum, Cortinarius, Inocybe, Dermocybe, Tricholoma, Entoloma, Amanita, and others.
