Assessment Notes

Taxonomic notes

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


Why suggested for a Global Red List Assessment?

Due to the lack of adequate information to make a direct or indirect assessment of its risk of extinction, based on its distribution and / or population status, I would suggest that this species be categorized as insufficient data (DD).


Geographic range

On this site, only 15 occurrences are observed in the world and although there is no record in GBIF for Brazil, this species is found in different regions, especially the Northeast.


Population and Trends

Despite the little record (15 occurrences), this species has a greater distribution than those mentioned for this site.

Population Trend: Improving

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

More information about the ecology of these species can help to understand the factors that influence their distribution, in addition to identifying, in a more specific way, the threats to this group’s biodiversity.
