Why suggested for a Global Red List Assessment?

Known from 3 collns (1 at Kew), separate locations but actively looked for.  Peter Johnston, Kew, Nov. 2010 states:  Berggrennia aurantiaca. This was described by Cooke in 1879 based on 2 Berggren collections from Waitaki and subsequently there has been a single Stevenson collection from Wellington (Catchpole).  These are quite distinctive gastero’s that Ross apparently never found – the same size as Paurocotylis, perhhaps a little paler, and with a distinctive, pale yellow, short, stalk-like base. The Waitaki site has no doubt been blitzed since Berggren was there, the Wellington one should be fine. Peter J, 2 June 2011 An additional PDD collection subsequently also IDed as this species, from Piha Valley. Rare, but not Nat Critical
