Assessment Notes

The content on this page is fetched from The IUCN Red List of Threatened Species: https://www.iucnredlist.org/species/226999368/227536455

Justification

Since the description of Cantharellus morchellocephalus there do not appear to be any subsequent records of the species. There is limited information available from the type description and with a lack of 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 range is unknown, and it is unclear where the type was described from (see Montagne 1837).

Population and Trends

It is only known from the type.

Population Trend: unknown


Habitat and Ecology

The type was described from a shaded garden (see Montagne 1837).

Threats

It is not possible to identify any threats to this species because of the lack of information available.

Conservation Actions

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