Hyaline or pale yellow glomerospores, (90-)120(-135) µm diam., with conoid ovoid depressions on the surface of the L2 wall.
Due to the several records worldwide, we suggest this species to be categorized as Least Concern (LC).
This species has been recorded in more than 12 countries, showing a worldwide distribution.
The species has a high occurrence (122), known in 14 countries in the GBIF. This number is possibly even higher.
Population Trend: Improving
In Brazil, this species is registered in different biomes, such as Amazon rainforest, Cerrado, Atlantic rainforest, Caatinga, Pampa and Pantanal In different habitats like agrosystems, impacted areas, natural areas, Murundu Fields and rupestrian fields. According to Blaszkowsky, in many studies the species is recorded in sandy soils, especially maritime dunes.
There are several threats to the conservation of arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi and their hosts, most of which are the result of human activities.
There are no specific conservation actions for this species or group of fungi. However, this species has already managed to be multiplied in trap culture, which may help in the maintenance of this species in the future.
Further studies should be carried out to assess the distribution of this species and to learn more about the ecology of these fungi.
