Assessment Notes

Taxonomic notes

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)


Geographic range

According to GBIF there are 24 occurrences in the world, but its presence in Brazil is known.

Research needed

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.
