Assessment Notes

Taxonomic notes

The genus Subulispora was erected by Tubaki, in 1971, with description type-species of the S. procurvata. Conidiogenous cells produce up to 30 flat scars, apical, terminal, integrated, sympodial development, light brown. Conidiophores erect, straight or curved, solitary, septate, brown. Conidia subuliform, hyaline; base abruptly truncate, with or without straight scar, smooth, with apical appendice, hyaline (Tubaki; Yokoyama, 1971; Pirozynski, 1972).

Why suggested for a Global Red List Assessment?

The study of conidial fungi in several environments can assist in expanding the knowledge of the diversity of existing this fungal and found forms of the conservation and use this micro-organisms.

Research needed

Although there are records of species on almost every continent, in Europe and Africa, there is only one record on both. In Brazil, there is a great number of registers in Bahia and São Paulo, mainly, there are no occurrences in ecosystems such as mangroves, sand banks and Coastral dunes.
