The only specimen of this species that has been recorded appears to be its type specimen, which was found in Corcovado, Brazil, as described by Corner 1966. No further information regarding this species distribution is known within recent years. Although this species is known to grow on dead twigs and bamboo culms, nothing more is known about its current habitat preferences. These data deficiencies make it difficult to assess this species’ current wild population trends. Until further research is carried out, addressing these deficiencies, this species is listed as DD.
Why suggested for a Global Red List Assessment?
The type specimen of this species was located in Corcovado, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil (Corner 1966). This specimen is currently under preservation by SP-Fungi - Maria Eneyda Pacheco Kauffmann Fidalgo (information provided by gbif, citation needed).
Population and Trends
The only record of this species is its type, which is currently preserved by SP-Fungi - Maria Eneyda Pacheco Kauffmann Fidalgo. It is unknown whether any further populations exist in the wild, and whether they are under threat. This species population trends remain uncertain until further information arises.
Population Trend: Uncertain
Habitat and Ecology
The type of this species was found growing on dead twigs and bamboo culms (Corner 1966). There does not appear to be any further information regarding the species upon which this fungus was growing.
If any wild populations of this species exist at its only known locality, they would likely be threatened by urbanization and tourism, however because the exact location of this area cannot be determined, it is unreasonable to formally assign this species any threats without further research.
Due to a deficiency in geographical information regarding this species, no conservation action can be recommended without further research.
Further research into this species’ distribution, habitat preferences, and whether it is threatened in its native range is required in order to accurately classify this species.
