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.
This is unlikely to be a Cantharellus due to its globose spores (I. Olariaga Ibarguren in litt. 2022).
Why suggested for a Global Red List Assessment?
This species has only been reported from Trins in the Gschintz valley, Austria (Wettstein 1886).
Population and Trends
Without further information regarding its full distribution it is not possible to estimate the population size and trend.
Population Trend: Uncertain
Habitat and Ecology
The type collection was made from pine forest (Wettstein 1886).
Without further information it is not possible to accurately investigate the potential threats that this species faces.
Further research is required into the taxonomic position of this species, in addition to ascertaining its natural distribution, threats, population size, and trend.
