This species is known from only a single collection made in Tasmania, Australia, as described in Berkeley 1860. Further information regarding this species’ wild distribution is unknown, in addition to information regarding this species’ habitat preferences and potential threats. Until such information arises, this species is listed as DD.
Why suggested for a Global Red List Assessment?
Chanterelle species, but dropped as considered to be a Lactarius.
This species has been found on only one occasion in Tasmania, Australia (Berkeley 1860). Any further information regarding the present geographic range of this species in the wild appears to be unknown.
Population and Trends
Information regarding any remaining wild populations of this species is unknown at this time, and is likely to remain as such without further research. Therefore, the current population trends of this species are uncertain.
Population Trend: Uncertain
Habitat and Ecology
This species was first described as growing, ‘amongst charcoal, fern, etc.’ (Berkeley 1860). Because the current geographic status of this species cannot be determined at this time, its habitat similarly remains undetermined.
The exact locality of any wild populations of this species within Tasmania, Australia, cannot be determined, and so it is unreasonable to assign any threats to this species without further research.
No conservation action can be recommended for this species at this time, due to a deficiency in information regarding its distribution, habitat preferences, and threats which may be affecting this species.
Further research is required in order to confirm the localities of any remaining wild populations of this species, as well as to assess the threats which may be affecting it, and its habitat preferences, in order to accurately determine a classification for this species.
