Why suggested for a Global Red List Assessment?

We propose to include this species in the global red list, considering its restricted distribution range in Southern Patagonia, its specific association with Nothofagus spp., and its intriguing evolutionary history as an ectomycorrhizal ascomycete.


Geographic range

Aleurina echinata is currently known from a few localities scattered in Southern Patagonia (Magallanes region in Chile and Tierra del Fuego in Argentina).
