Assessment Notes

Justification

This recently described species is known only from its holotype collection, made in the Republic of Korea, Cheong-cheon myeon, Geoi-san in 2013. Little is known regarding the habitat preferences of this species, but it is known to have been found growing underneath Castanea crenata and Larix kaempferi species. This species appears to exist under protection, and is therefore not significantly threatened. Due to a deficiency in information regarding this species’ geographic range and specific habitat preferences, it is difficult to assess the current population trends of this species, although they are presumed to be stable at this time. Further research is needed in order to assess this species’ habitat preferences and geographic distribution, in order to build an accurate assessment of this species, and so this species is listed as DD until such research is carried out.
