Pseudotulasnella guatemalensis is a resupinate species known exclusively from its type collection in 1963 in Guatemala. No further records have been made since and little information is available, so the species is assessed as Data Deficient (DD).


Taxonomic notes

Type and only species in the Pseudotulasnella genus, established based on morphological characteristics, namely of its basidia (Lowy, 1964). No molecular data is available for this species.


Why suggested for a Global Red List Assessment?

Population Trend: Uncertain


Habitat and Ecology

Resupinate species, found growing on rotten frondose wood (Lowy, 1964).


Threats
