This species is known from only a single locality, but from multiple collections at this locality (in Brazil, Pernambuco, Igarassu, Refugio Ecologico Charles Darwin). This species is thought to exist entirely under preservation, however if any wild populations of this species remain at its known locality, they are unlikely to be significantly threatened, existing within the Refugio Ecologico Charles Darwin. Until further research regarding this species’ present wild distribution, specific habitat preferences, and any potential threats is carried out, this species is listed as DD.
Why suggested for a Global Red List Assessment?
This species was initially found in Brazil, Pernambuco, Igarassu, in the Refugio Ecologico Charles Darwin in July of 2008. Additional specimens were found at the same locality multiple times on the same day in May of 2010. Another preserved specimen is known from the same locality, collected in June of 2010, and is currently preserved by JPB - Herbário Lauro Pires Xavier. The remainder of this species’ known specimens appear to be preserved by URM - Herbário Pe. Camille Torrand.
Population and Trends
This species appears to exist entirely under preservation, and if any wild populations of this species remain at its known locality, they are likely to exist under protection of the Refugio Ecologico Charles Darwin. As such, this species’ population is assumed stable until further information arises.
Population Trend: Stable
Habitat and Ecology
This species has been observed growing sub-gregariously and is widespread on soil among litter in tropical fragmented Atlantic forest, with some basidiomes growing near ant nests.
This species is not thought to be significantly threatened, existing under preservation of the Refugio Ecologico Charles Darwin.
This species appears to exist either under preservation, or within protected habitat, however further research into this species’ current wild distribution, habitat preferences, and potential threats is required in order to build an accurate assessment of this species.
