Assessment Notes

Justification

Ixocomus australiuralensis was described for Eastern European Russia in 1955, but has not been recorded since and there is no further documentation on it. It is likely that this species has been forgotten to science, and taxonomic review is needed to confirm its placement in the genus Ixocomus. Therefore, the species is assessed as Data Deficient (DD).


Taxonomic notes

Ixocomus australiuralensis is the only remaining species in its genus, while others have been transferred mostly to the genus Suillus. (Species Fungorum, 2023)


Why suggested for a Global Red List Assessment?


Geographic range

Described at the time for Eastern European Russia (Species Fungorum, 2023).


Population and Trends

There are no records or documentation on this species other than its description in 1955, so it is not possible to estimate current population size.

Population Trend: Uncertain


Habitat and Ecology

Found in open woods of Pinus sylvestris.


Threats


Conservation Actions


Research needed

Given that all other species have been transferred to other genera, a review of I. australiuralensis’ taxonomic placement is recommended. Research into its ecology, distribution and population size is also needed.
