Assessment Notes

Justification

There is a high degree of uncertainty around this species, including its specific distribution and its taxonomic position. With no clear data available on this species it is assessed as Data Deficient.


Taxonomic notes

It is uncertain if this is a Cantharellus sensu stricto as Gillet had a broad concept of the genus (broader than today). In any case, if it is a Cantharellus, it would likely be an albino form of a common species (C. cibarius or C. pallens) and the name has not been used either.


Why suggested for a Global Red List Assessment?

Chanterelle species to be assessed as part of the chanterelle comprehensive project.


Geographic range

The type collection of this species was made in France, but no specific locality is noted in Saccardo (1887).


Population and Trends

Further information is required before an assessment of its population status is made.

Population Trend: Uncertain


Habitat and Ecology

It has been noted from woodland, where it grows amongst grasses (Saccardo 1887).

Temperate Forest

Threats

Further information is required before an investigation into its threats can be made.


Conservation Actions


Research needed

There is a paucity of information available regarding this species, and its taxonomic position needs clarification. If it is shown to be a good species then further work would be required to gain a greater insight into its distribution, population size and trend.
