Why suggested for a Global Red List Assessment?
The species was known for a long time from several tropical countries, has a characteristic appearance, and is easily identified in the field. At the same time, now it is rarely found everywhere. Its number is probably decreasing.
The species was found in Singapore (Corner, 1972), India (Chakraborty et al., 2017, Genbank), China (Han et al, 2018), Vietnam (Pham, 2018), Japan (Genbank, ectomycorriza)
