Assessment Notes

Taxonomic notes

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.


Geographic range

There are only three records of the species in the world.


Population and Trends

The species occurs in Malaysia and Brazil as an endophyte.
