Nemania abortiva is the only described Nemania species with
consistently fewer than 8 ascospores. Examination of immature
asci reveals that 8 ascospores are delimited, but fewer than 8 -
most frequently 4 - become mature, i.e. some of them appear to
abort (Rogers et al., 2006).
Why suggested for a Global Red List Assessment?
The species occurs in areas of critical points of global biodiversity, threatened by urbanization and agricultural activities. I suggest inclusion of it in the near threatened category. (NT)
According to GBIF there are 24 occurrences in the world, but its presence in Brazil is known.
Population and Trends
Although in GBIF there are only 24 occurrences in the world, the presence of this species in Brazil is known.
Population Trend: Uncertain
Habitat and Ecology
Decayed unidentified angiospermous wood, and as an endophytic fungus.
Subtropical/Tropical Moist Lowland ForestOther
In Brazil the species was registered in an environmental protection area. But it is an area that suffers from anthropogenic actions.
In Brazil the species was registered in an environmental protection area.
The occurrences in GBIF did not include the presence of the species in Brazil, but it is known of its presence in Brazil. Therefore, more research is needed to identify the area of occurrence of the species.
