Differs from Septoglomus africanum, S. deserticola, and S. xanthium by its larger spores with 3-layered walls; and from S. constrictum by its thicker 3-layered spore walls (Goto et al. 2013).
We suggest this species to be categorized as Least Concern (LC).
The species is known in two countries.
In Brazil, the species is found in Atlantic Forest, Caatinga and Cerrado.
In Brazil, Septoglomus titan can be found in Tropical rainforest and Tropical Dry Forest. However, these forests currently have higher rates of deforestation.
Some records in Brazil are in unprotected areas. The isolation of this fungus in controlled condition represents an advance for the conservation of this species.
Other areas should be studied in order to assess the distribution of this species.
