Why suggested for a Global Red List Assessment?

On Hauturu (Little Barrier Is.) and Waitakere Ranges, Auckland. May be confused with Ophiocordyceps robertsii.

Joan Dingley described and illustrated Cordyceps hauturu (Dingley 1953), a ‘vegetable caterpillar’ that is parasitic on larvae of an hepialid moth. The fungus is known from only two collections, both pre-1953, from Hauturu (Little Barrier Is.) and from Auckland. Cordyceps hauturu is similar in overall appearance to the comparatively common Ophiocordyceps robertsii, known to Māori as āwheto and also recorded on Hauturu.
