Why suggested for a Global Red List Assessment?

Stereopsis vitellina wood decomposer or mycorrhizal species found in old-growth pine forests under coarse pine logs or on soil under roots or in mole- or vole galleries. It grows in the sandy pine forests where rare stipitate hydnoid fungi also grow.  The potential habitat of Stereopsis vitellina decreasing due to harvesting of old – pine forests on sandy soil, removal of coarse woody debris, regulation of fire.
