Assessment Notes

The content on this page is fetched from The IUCN Red List of Threatened Species: https://www.iucnredlist.org/species/226992948/227537600

Justification

There is limited information available from the type description of Cantharellus fascicularis, and 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 now assessed as Data Deficient.

Taxonomic notes

It does not appear to be a Cantharellus but could potentially be a synonym of Craterellus melanoxeros (I. Olariaga Ibarguren in litt. 2022).

Geographic range

The precise range of this species unknown, but the type was described from oak in Bavaria (Sturm 1853).

Population and Trends

It is only known from type.

Population Trend: unknown


Habitat and Ecology

The type was described from a specimen found in September at the root of Quercus in Bavaria. Early listing notes that Cantharellus fascicularis is unlike any other mushroom but no further information is available (Saccardo 1887).

Threats

Because of the lack of available information, it is not possible to accurately assess any potential threats.

Conservation Actions

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