Assessment Notes

The content on this page is fetched from The IUCN Red List of Threatened Species: https://www.iucnredlist.org/species/226992427/227535990

Justification

There is limited information available on Cantharellus cupularis. With a lack of occurrence data and 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 suspected to not be a Cantharellus, and is probably a Resupinatus or a Hohenbuehelia (I. Olariaga Ibarguren in litt. 2022).

Geographic range

Cantharellus cupularis was described from Polmack, in the Finnmark region of Norway (Wahlenberg 1812).

Population and Trends

This species is only known from the type.

Population Trend: unknown


Habitat and Ecology

Cantharellus cupularis was described on rotten wood of Salix phylicifolia (see Wahlenberg 1812).

Threats

No threats can be identified for this species at this time due to the lack of information about its full range. However, Salix phylicifolia, the substrate species from the type description has been assessed as Least Concern (see Rivers 2021).

Conservation Actions

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