Assessment Notes

Justification

Ceratoporia perplexa is a resupinate species known only from its type specimen, described in 2002 for Brazil. Further records are needed to estimate population size and distribution, so the species is assessed as Data Deficient (DD).


Taxonomic notes

Type and only species in Ceratoporia genus, established in 2002 based on its morphological characteristics (Ryvarden and Meijer, 2002).


Why suggested for a Global Red List Assessment?


Geographic range

Only known from one location in Paraná, Brazil (Colombo, Centro Nacional de Pesquisa de Florestas).


Population and Trends

Only known from its description. Without further records it is not possible to estimate population size.

Population Trend: Uncertain


Habitat and Ecology

Annual resupinate species, found growing on decayed branch of dicotyledonous tree, in mixed ombrophilous forest (Ryvarden and Meijer, 2002).

Subtropical/Tropical Moist Montane Forest

Threats

Unknown.


Conservation Actions


Research needed

Targeted search efforts and research into its ecology and habitat preferences are needed to establish population size and distribution. Given that this is a monotypic genus, further research into its taxonomy is also recommended, namely through molecular analysis.
