Assessment Notes


This species is known from the collection of 3 specimens from India, Himachal Pradesh, Shimla, Kufri forest, on soil under Quercus leucotrichophora. Further information regarding this species’ habitat preferences is unknown. Furthermore, 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 DD, due to a lack of information regarding its present day distribution, specific habitat preferences, and potential threats.
