This species is heavily deficient in any information regarding its present day distribution, habitat preferences, and potential threats, although it is known to have been collected from Papua New Guinea, growing on decaying grass, as described in Kobayashi 1971. Without information relating to current populations, it is difficult to assess the current population trends of this species. Until further research is carried out in regards to these deficiencies in information, this species is listed as DD.
Why suggested for a Global Red List Assessment?
This species is known to occur within Papua New Guinea (Kobayashi 1971).
Population and Trends
Due to the great lack of information regarding this species’ population distribution, habitat preferences, and whether or not it is significantly threatened, the population trends of this species remain uncertain. Further research is required in order to better understand these trends.
Population Trend: Uncertain
Habitat and Ecology
The type specimen of this species was found growing on decaying grass (Kobayashi 1971), however no further information appears to be known regarding this species’ habitat.
Any threats which may be affecting this species are unknown at this time due to a deficiency in information regarding its geographical location.
No conservation action can be recommended for this species at this time, given the almost total lack of information regarding this species.
Much research is needed in order to determine this species’ habitat preferences, its distribution, and whether it is significantly threatened, in order to accurately classify this species.
