DistributionRead full entry
Umbelopsis dimorpha has only been isolated from soils. It was first isolated in New Zealand from greywacke soils (Mahoney et al. 2004). These soils are characterized by having coarse grains with > 15% clay. It was also isolated from broad leaved forest soil from various regions of China (Wang et al. 2013). Currently, China and New Zealand are the only confirmed reported geographic regions, however the geographic distribution is likely larger. For example, a study examining the fungal community structure of prescribed fire sites in Georgia, USA, showed that one of the most abundant operational taxonomic unit (OTU) present among soil dwelling fungi had similarity to U. dimorpha (Oliver et al. 2015).
