Ceropegia  rollae Hemadri (Apocynaceae) an endemic and critically endangered plant was first time recorded from a mountain pass in the Western Ghats ranges of Maharashtra known as Naneghat [19°30’64’’ N  & 73°67’99’’ Etreated as a new locality other than previously reported by plant taxonomists. Present paper deals with assessment of Arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi (AMF) associated with plant. Overall colonization intensity was 73.03±1.03% in cleared and stained roots. Detailed microscopic investigations of C. rollae roots confirmed mycorrhizal status of plant. Total nine Arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi (AMF) viz., Acaulospora bireticulata, A. laevis, A. undulata, Ambispora leptoticha, Dentiscutata reticulata, Entrophospora baltica, Gigaspora gigantea, Glomus austral and Scutellospora dipurpusescrns were extracted from rhizosphere soil. Based on spore density and relative abundance Acaulospora undulata was diagnosed as dominant AMF species of C. rollae.  

Keywords: Acaulospora undulata, Arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi (AMF), Ceropegia  rollae Hemadri,   Rare endangered and threatened (RET) plants.
