This species is known from only a single collection, made in Brazil, Amazonas, Manaus, Ramal Pau Rosa in March of 2007. This specimen constitutes this species’ type, and is currently preserved by JPB - Herbário Lauro Pires Xavier. There appears to be a deficiency in information regarding the potential threats to this species, as well as its habitat preferences and geographic distribution, and as such, until further research is carried out to address these deficiencies, it remains difficult to assess the current population trends of this species. It is therefore listed as DD until new information relevant to this assessment arises.
Why suggested for a Global Red List Assessment?
This species is known from only a single locality, in Brazil, Amazonas, Manaus, Ramal Pau Rosa, collected in March of 2007. This type specimen is the only specimen known of this species, and is currently preserved by JPB - Herbário Lauro Pires Xavier
Population and Trends
This species appears to exist entirely under preservation. If any wild populations of this species exist at its known locality, it is unknown to what extent these populations may be threatened, due to a deficiency in information regarding the geographic distribution of this species. Its population trends are therefore assumed to be stable until further information arises.
Population Trend: Stable
Habitat and Ecology
This species is known to grow gregariously on soil of Amazon rainforest.
Information regarding the potential threats to this species’ habitat at its known locality is deficient.
Due to a deficiency in information regarding this species’ habitat preferences, geographic distribution, and potential threats, no conservation action can be recommended at this time. Further research is needed in order to address these deficiencies,
