Preliminary assessment unable to access full type description.
Since the description of Cantherellus confertus there do not appear to be any subsequent records of the species. There is limited information available from the species listing 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 assessed as Data Deficient.
Cantharellus confertus was described by Josef Velenovský and Albert Pilát in 1925 in Mykologia and was listed by Petrak in 1937.
GBIF lists taxonomy as doubtful.
Why suggested for a Global Red List Assessment?
Chanterelle species to be assessed as part of the chanterelle comprehensive project.
Range unknown, described in pine woods in ‘Bohemia’ from type specimen.
No occurrence data available on GBIF.
Population and Trends
Only known from type description.
Population Trend: Uncertain
Habitat and Ecology
Petrak’s list (1937) records the type specimen was described in pine woods, but the extent of habitat is unknown.
No major threats identified due to lack of information about habitat extent and ecology of species.
Confirmation of taxonomic status, population and distribution data and ecology required to better assess species.
