Assessment Notes

Taxonomic notes

The spores are yellow to brown in color, globose or subglobos
in shape, occasionally irregular. A characteristic that differentiates this species are
labyrinth-shaped ornaments on the surface of the L2 layer of the spore
wall.


Why suggested for a Global Red List Assessment?

Considering the common record of this species in different ecosystems and countries I suggest its classification as LC.


Geographic range

This species has been found in different continents and countries
such as: Brasil, Colômbia, Indonésia, México, Polônia, and Taiwan.


Population and Trends

There are few records of the species in GBIF, but studies show greater
occurrence.

Population Trend: Improving


Habitat and Ecology

impacted areas. In Brazil it has been registered in different biomes such as: Amazon Forest, Atlantic Forest, Caatinga, and Cerrado.

Subtropical/Tropical Dry ForestDry Savanna

Threats

The destruction of habitat of various activities of anthropic origin, constitutes one of the main threats to arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi.

Housing & urban areasOil & gas drillingUnintentional effects (species being assessed is not the target)Increase in fire frequency/intensity

Conservation Actions

Conservation actions for this group include: creating areas and maintaining protected areas, preserving native vegetation and soil.

Site/area protectionResource & habitat protectionCaptive breeding/artificial propagation

Research needed
