Assessment Notes

The content on this page is fetched from The IUCN Red List of Threatened Species: https://www.iucnredlist.org/species/189310588/223773157

Justification

This species is known from the collection of three specimens from Kufri forest near to Shimla, India, on soil under Quercus leucotrichophora. The extent to which this species, or Quercus leucotrichophora, is threatened is unknown at this time, making it difficult to assess the current population trends of this species. Until further research is carried out to address these data deficiencies, this species is listed as Data Deficient, due to a lack of information regarding its present day distribution, specific habitat preferences, and potential threats.

Geographic range

Only three specimens of this species appear to be known, all from the same location in India. These specimens were found near to Shimla in Kufri forest at an altitude of 1,700 m, in July 2007, July 2008, and August 2009 (Deepika et al. 2013). Further information regarding this species' present day distribution is lacking.

Population and Trends

Information regarding the threats affecting this species is lacking, and so the current population trends of this species remain uncertain at this time.

Population Trend: unknown


Habitat and Ecology

This species has been found growing on the soil under Quercus leucotrichophora (Deepika et al. 2013).

Threats

Information regarding the threats to this species, or those affecting Quercus leucotrichophora (with which this species associates), is lacking and is likely to remain as such without further research.

Conservation Actions

Further research into this species' distribution, habitat preferences, and potential threats is required in order to build an accurate assessment of this species.
