On ITS Diaporthe passifloricola is 98% similar to D. miriciae, but it presents morphological differences in relation to the sizes of beta conidia and conidiophores. (Crous et al., 2016).
Why suggested for a Global Red List Assessment?
It is a rare species, with only three occurrences in the world. More studies need to be done to learn more about its ecology and distribution, so I suggest including it in deficient data.
There are only three records of the species in the world.
Population and Trends
The species occurs in Malaysia and Brazil as an endophyte.
