There is limited information available on Cantharellus muscorum. With a lack of occurrence data and information on the habitat and ecology of the species, it is not possible to assess the status of its population or distribution. It is therefore assessed as Data Deficient.

Taxonomic notes

It is most likely not a chanterelle (I. Olariaga Ibarguren in litt. 2022).

Geographic range

The extent of its range is unknown, it is unclear where Cantharellus muscorum was described from. Saccardo (1887) lists it only as a European species.

Population Trend: unknown


Habitat and Ecology

The type was described from trunks of old Quercus and found in autumn and winter (Fries 1821).

Threats

No threats can be inferred due to the paucity of information.

Conservation Actions

Confirmation is required of taxonomic status, population and distribution data and ecology to better assess this species.
