Ectomycorrhizas of 5-month-old Pinus patula plants grown in autoclaved shola soil (forest soil) inoculated with basidiospores of Amanita muscaria, Laccaria laccata and Suillus brevipes are described. The main em phasis is on the organisation of the mantle tissue as seen in plan view and features of associated hyphae and strands. The different layers in the mantle produced by the different fungi are described and illustrated.
