Gyroporus punctatus is a very rare species known only from the south of Russian Far East and Japan. It can be found only in natural oak forests. This species is endangered because the area of natural habitats is noticeable reduced in recent years due to several reasons (human impact, drying caused by illness, and probably climate change). (Data on this species were compiled by Eugenia Bulakh)
The south of Russian Far East, including Amur River Basin (Jewish Autonomous Region, Primorsky Krai), Japan
A small amount of localities
Symbiotrophic fungus with Quercus (e.g. Q. mongolica). It is associated mostly with mountain (or near mountain) oak forests.
Reducing of the oak forest area due to deforestation or drying caused by environmental and climate changes.
Organization of protected areas containing known localities, preservation of oak forests.
