Assessment Notes

Taxonomic notes

This species was first described in Colombian montane forests by Singer, Halling and Obrevo, from specimens collected under Quercus humbodtii in Antioquia and Nariño departments (Singer, Obrevo & Halling 1990)
Phylloporus fibulatus can be distinguished from other similar taxa because of a combination of characters: presence of clamp connections, the fresh spore print has an olive tone
and the absence of a blue green reaction to ammonia (Singer, Obrevo & Halling 1990 )


Why suggested for a Global Red List Assessment?

This species first was described from Colombia in mountain forests, and more collections have been found there since. It has not been found in other Neotropical forests, although it might occur outside Colombia because of similar forest types in the montane Neotropics (Neves & Halling 2009). Phylloporus fubulatus is an ectomycorrhizal fungi associated with Quercus humboldtii

 


Geographic range

In Colombia this species has been collected in Antioquia, Nariño and Tolima departments in mountain areas with Quercus humboldtii


Population and Trends

The main known threat to Phylloporus fibulatus is the habitat declining and fragmentation due deforestation and the decrease of it host species Quercus humboldtii populations (Gallagher, 2018).  Anthropogenic pressure on oak forests and the habitat degradation is mainly due to land use change, logging, deforestation, urbanization. In addition, timber extraction carried out in for the production of charcoal and the use of the wood is used in the construction of houses and furniture generates a great impact in oak populations (Cárdenas & Salinas 2006, Nieto & Rodriguez 2010). Almost 42% of Quercus humboltii populations have undergone in an intense process of decline and it is in the vulnerable category (VU A2cd) for Colombia(Gallagher, 2018)
