Assessment Notes

Taxonomic notes

Nigrospora hainanensis was isolated for the first time from Musa paradisiaca from Hainan, China, clustered in a well-supported clade and appearing closely related to N. gorlenkoana (Wang et al., 2017).


Why suggested for a Global Red List Assessment?

It is not a common species, presenting about six occurrences in the world. Studies in other locations are needed to understand its distribution. I suggest including it in deficient data.


Geographic range

The species has about 6 occurrences in three countries.

The species appears to be rare, with greater occurrence in China.
