Cribraria violacea is recognized by its long sporangium and its marcable very dark violet color.
Why suggested for a Global Red List Assessment?
Although to be a well distributed species, in Brazil this species need attention because many records are from endangered biomes. Thus, I suggest this species to be categorized in Least Concern.
Cribraria violacea is known in 58 countries. In Brazil, it is known in 12 of 26 states.
Population and Trends
There are about 1255 records among 58 countries, 132 records are from Brazil.
Population Trend: Uncertain
Habitat and Ecology
In Brazil Cribraria violacea can be found on dead leaves, aerial leaf litter, living bark trees, inflorescence and decomposing trunk in disturbed and protected areas, mangroove forest, atlantic forest and caatinga.
The specie is well distributed in Brazil, mostly in northeast region, it is present in Biomes which have been losing its biological diversity due to deforestation, agricultural activities and urbanization.
