There is very little to no information available regarding this European species’ full distribution, population size and trend. Therefore, it is not possible to accurately estimate its extinction risk and as such it is assessed as Data Deficient.
It might be a Craterellus (not a Cantharellus) but the name has not been used (I. Olariaga Ibarguren in litt. 2022).
Why suggested for a Global Red List Assessment?
This species appears to only be known from material collected in pine woodland at Petaheid near to Verviers in Belgium (Saccardo 1887).
Population and Trends
There is no information regarding the overall population size and trend.
Population Trend: Uncertain
Habitat and Ecology
This species has been collected from pine woodland (Saccardo 1887).
Without a clearer understanding of the full range of the species it is difficult to understand the current threats to its population. However, it is suspected that agriculture and urbanisation around Verviers will have impacted the species, at least in the past.
Housing & urban areasAgro-industry farmingAgro-industry grazing, ranching or farming
The known area of the species is near to the Parc Naturel des Hautes Fagnes, but it is unknown if the species has been positively recorded from there.
Further research is required to get a clearer understanding of the full range of this species, its population size and trend. Taxonomic work to see if it should be a Craterellus should be conducted.
