Assessment Notes

Taxonomic notes

Amauroderma praetervisum is characterised by the dark, strongly zonate and thick pileus, and finely ornamented, globose to subglobose basidiospores (9‒12 × 9‒11 μm). The species is easily confused with A. omphalodes and A. pseudoboletum which have more ellipsoid basidiospores (Ryvarden 2004; Gomes-Silva et al. 2015).


Why suggested for a Global Red List Assessment?


Geographic range

Neotropical species known in 14 countries, but mostly recorded in Brazil. Reports other than the Neotropics should be revaluated.


Population and Trends

The species has about 145 occurrences, according to GBIF.

Population Trend: Uncertain


Habitat and Ecology

This species occurs in four Brazilian biomes: Amazon, Cerrado, Atlantic Forest and Caatinga.

Subtropical/Tropical Dry ForestSubtropical/Tropical Moist Lowland ForestSubtropical/Tropical Mangrove Forest Vegetation Above High Tide Level

Threats

The species is well distributed in Brazil. However, the Amazon has currently the highest rates of deforestation in the last decades, the Atlantic Forest and Cerrado are already hotspots, and Caatinga is threatened with desertification.
