Current name Cora soredavidia: Dal-Forno, Marcelli & Lücking, Fungal Diversity 84: 196 (2016) [MB # 552441]
Found in the Atlantic Forest a hotspot. Species little found and with deficient data. (NT)
According to Reflora: It occurs in Brazil, only in the state of Minas Gerais.

Population Trend: Uncertain
Life form: Symbiont Substrate: Living plant - stem cortex. Cora species are identified as model organisms to reconstruct the evolution of lichenized lifestyle in fungi (Dal Forno et al. 2013).
In general, the species occurs in forest areas such as the Atlantic Forest that are threatened by intense human interference such as: deforestation and urbanization.
For the conservation of the species, preservation measures are urgently needed, seeking actions for better environmental conditions in these areas.
It is necessary to study new areas of occurrence of the species, and to encourage actions related to the conservation of this natural habitat.
