Assessment Notes

Taxonomic notes

When described in 2013, the species showed sterile cultures. Diaporthe infecunda differs from its closest phylogenetic neighbors in that it has unique fixed alleles in five loci (Gomes et al., 2013).


Why suggested for a Global Red List Assessment?

The species seems to be common in Brazil, but rare in other countries. The species occurs in the Brazilian Atlantic Forest, one of the main critical points of global biodiversity, threatened by urbanization and agricultural activities. I suggest inclusion of it in the near threatened category.


Geographic range

According to GBIF Diaporthe infecunda has about 10 occurrences, all in Brazil.
