Why suggested for a Global Red List Assessment?

New Zealand. Only 2 collections known, both were identified by G. Cunningham as Poria leucoplaca (Berk.) Cooke (=Dichomitus leucoplacus (Berk.) Ryvarden), a species with smaller pores ((3-)4-5 per mm) and spores (10-14 x 4-5.5 µm). Unusual feature of septate basidiospores possibly related to spore maturity, with some septate spores of D. newhookii in the early stages of germination. In macroscopic appearance strongly resembles the New Zealand species Perenniporia podocarpi. Known from dead wood of ?Knightia excelsa and Kunzea ericoides. Well collected fungal group - by Dingley, Cunningham, (Buchanan)
