Assessment Notes


This species is known only from its type collection, made in Santa Catarina, Brazil, as described by Hennings 1897, however no further information is available regarding this species’ distribution. If this species still exists at this locality, it likely threatened by urbanization, however further research is needed to confirm this. No information is available describing this species’ habitat preferences, and so it is difficult to assess the current population trends of this species. Until further research yields relevant information to this assessment, this species is listed as DD.

Taxonomic notes

Why suggested for a Global Red List Assessment?

Chanterelle species

Geographic range

The type specimen of this species was located in Brazil, Santa Catarina, Blumenau (Hennings 1897). No further specimens appear to be known.

Population and Trends

Data regarding this species’ distribution, ecology, and threats are deficient. This species does not appear to exist under preservation, and is known only from its type specimen collection over 100 years ago. Therefore, the current status of this species’ wild populations remains uncertain until further information arises.

Population Trend: Uncertain

Habitat and Ecology

Information regarding the habitat preferences of this species appears to be deficient.


Any existing wild populations of this species at its known locality are likely to be threatened by urbanization, however because accurate geographical information regarding the distribution of this species is lacking, no threats can be reasonably assigned to this species.

Conservation Actions

At this time, no conservation action can be recommended for this species, due to a deficiency in information regarding its habitat preferences, distribution, and its possible threats.

Research needed

Further research is required regarding this species’ distribution, habitat preferences, and possible threats in order to accurately classify this species.
