Assessment Notes

Justification

Cantharellus odorus appears to only be known from the type collection, from the Gschintz Valley in Austria. Without any more recent collections it is not possible to accurately estimate its extinction risk. Therefore, C. odorus is assessed as Data Deficient.


Taxonomic notes

This is unlikely to be a Cantharellus due to its globose spores (I. Olariaga Ibarguren in litt. 2022).
