Rigidoporus vinctus is characterized by pink to black basidiomata, tiny pores (6–12 per mm) and strongly encrusted cystidia. It is related to R. undatus (Pers.) Donk, differing by the colour of the basidiomata (isabelline to beige), larger pores (7–9 per mm) and smooth or only apically encrusted cystidia (Gomes-Silva et al. 2014)
Why suggested for a Global Red List Assessment?
Species distributed worldwide, present in 46 countries.
Population and Trends
The species has about 549 occurrences, about 1/3 in Brazil.
Population Trend: Uncertain
Habitat and Ecology
This species occurs in four Brazilian biomes: Amazon, Cerrado, Atlantic Forest and Caatinga.
It presents no evident threat, being very common at least in Brazil. However, it is found in the Atlantic Forest, a hotspot, in the Amazonia (currently being deforested at the highest rates in the last decades) and Cerrado (also a hotspot). Also, Caatinga is threatened with desertification.
