This species appears to have been found twice in November of 1993 at the Villa Mills, Costa Rica, San José Perez Zeledon, and also in August of 1986 at Estrella, Costa Rica, Cartago.


Population and Trends

This species’ population appears to be stable, existing under preservation with evidence to suggest a significant threat towards this species being deficient.

Population Trend: Stable


Habitat and Ecology

Information on the habitat preferences of this species appears to be lacking.


Threats

As information on the habitat occupied by this species appears to be lacking, it is unreasonable to assign a threat to this species, however it could be threatened by agriculture and livestock ranching, as well as urban development, although this information needs investigating through further research.


Conservation Actions

This species appears to exist under preservation by the Field Museum of Natural History (Botany) Fungi Collection, and information into the locality of wild populations of this species is deficient. No conservation actions can be recommended at this time without further research.


Research needed

Further research into this species’ habitat preferences, distribution, and whether it is under threat is required in order to accurately classify this species.
