Assessment Notes

Justification

Known only from a collection from the 19th century, collected in woodland near to Palermo, Sicily, there are taxonomic doubts regarding this species. With little information to base a clear assessment of extinction risk on, Cantharellys turrisi is assessed as Data Deficient.


Taxonomic notes

Cantharellus turrigii appears to be an orthographic variant of this (I. Olariaga Ibarguren in litt. 2022), but the species could be a synonym of Hypsizygus ulmarius (I. Olariaga Ibarguren in litt. 2022).
