Taxonomic notes


Why suggested for a Global Red List Assessment?

Chanterelle project


Geographic range

Described in the late 19th Century (Index Fungorum 2024), it appears as if the species is still only known from the type collection made in the Luchon Valley, France (Martin-Sans 1924), near to the border with Spain.


Population and Trends

More information is required before an assessment of the population size and trend can be made.

Population Trend: Uncertain


Habitat and Ecology

Within the Luchon valley this species was recorded from an area of mica schist, underneath chestnut trees (Martin-Sans 1924).

Temperate Forest

Threats

Without further information it is not possible to accurately understand whether this species faces any significant threats or not.


Conservation Actions


Research needed

Further research is required into this species. Attempts should be made to try to relocate the species, with initial attempts in and around the type locality, but also further afield. This would allow for a better assessment of its full range, as well as its potential population size and trend. Collection of additional specimens could also enable taxonomic work, to ensure that it is a good species.
