The type specimen of this species was located in Costa Rica (Eyssartier et al 2003). One record of this species comes from human observation, made in September 2020, occurring in San Jose, Costa Rica. 22 further specimens from Costa Rica are preserved by the Fungi of Costa Rica Collection and by the New York Botanical Garden Herbarium (geographic locations provided by gbif).
Population and Trends
This species exists under preservation for the most part, but a very recent human observation from September 2020 is also known from Costa Rica. This species’ experienced habitat is likely under threat of deforestation, and so until further information arises, this species’ population is thought to be in decline.
Population Trend: Decreasing
Habitat and Ecology
This species is known to occur on the soil beneath Quercus corrugata (Eyssartier et al 2003).
Subtropical/Tropical Moist Montane Forest
Any wild populations of this species at its known localities are likely to be threatened by deforestation, although no threats have been formally reported in regards to this species at this time.
This species is likely to exist within protected habitat. Protection of this habitat is required for conservation of this species in the wild.
Resource & habitat protection
Further research into this species’ distribution, habitat preferences, and to what extent this species is threatened in its native range is required in order to more accurately classify this species.
