The species Bovista paludosa primarily occurs in wet habitats, first and foremost in high alpine peat bogs. In our country, it has been found in Sar Mt (two sites) and in Korab Mt (a single site), in wet peat bogs with Sphagnum. The number of recorded individuals is no more than 20. The number of fruiting bodies in all anticipated habitats is estimated at less than 50. In the light of the endangerment of these habitats in the country but also in Europe as a whole, and the small number of sites and individuals, it has been proposed for the category of Critically Endangered – CR. According to IUCN’s Global Red List of Threatened Species, the species is assessed as Vulnerable.
