Assessment Notes


Although recordings of 2 specimens of this species are known to be preserved within the Herbarium of the Swedish Museum of Natural History, the status of any existing wild populations is unknown, making an assessment of the current trends of this species’ population difficult. Information regarding this species’ habitat preferences and potential threats are deficient. Therefore, until further research is carried out to address these deficiencies, this species is listed as DD.

Taxonomic notes

Why suggested for a Global Red List Assessment?

Chanterelle species

Geographic range

Two preserved specimens of this species from Negros, Philippines, are known (geographic locations provided by gbif, citation needed). Recordings of these specimens appear to exist within the Herbarium of the Swedish Museum of Natural History.

Population and Trends

This species appears to exist under preservation, and it is unknown whether this species is threatened in its native range. Without further research, the current trends of this species’ population are uncertain.

Population Trend: Uncertain

Habitat and Ecology

This species was found growing on the ground (Bresadola 1913). No further information regarding habitat preference appears to be known.


The only recorded specimens of this species appear to be under preservation. The localities of any wild populations of this species cannot be discerned without further research, and so assignment of threats to this species unreasonable at this time.

Conservation Actions

Because the only known specimens of this species exist under preservation, and because it is unknown whether wild populations of this species are threatened, no conservation action can be recommended without further research.

Research needed

Further research into the geographic locations and habitat preferences of this species, as well as the extent to which this species is threatened in its native range, is required in order to accurately classify this species.
