Assessment Notes

Taxonomic notes

The species have conidiophores formed from the inner layer of the locular wall with 1 to 3 septa. Conidiogenic cells are cylindrical to flexible. It has abundant cylindrical alpha-conidia, rounded at the ends, bigutulated and flexible beta-conidia for hamate (Thompson et al., 2015).

Why suggested for a Global Red List Assessment?

The species described in 2015, but there is still little data on its ecology. In Brazil, the area of ​​occurrence is the Atlantic Forest, one of the hotspots of global biodiversity, threatened by urbanization and agricultural activities. I suggest including it in the near threatened category.

Geographic range

The species has about 15 occurrences in 5 countries.

Population and Trends

There are about 15 records of the species in the world, half are in Australia. Apparently, it is not a very common species.
