For the species Hydnellum peckii, only two individuals from a single locality (Sar Mt) with spruce forest have been recorded in N. Macedonia. This habitat type is present in minor areas in the country compared to the remaining forest associations, and in comparison with the occurrence of fir-spruce forests in Europe. Spruce community appears to be the primary habitat for species growth in our country. In this context, it is worth emphasizing that the southern boundary of spruce areal of distribution passes through N. Macedonia. In spite of the fact that the site where the species has been observed is part of a pending protected area, in the national park category, there are logging activities and facilities construction works in its immediate vicinity. The area of occupancy is 12 км2 but it also comprises the other localities with spruce communities where the species is projected to occur. Subsequently, the species is proposed for the category of Endangered (EN).
