Assessment Notes

The content on this page is fetched from The IUCN Red List of Threatened Species: https://www.iucnredlist.org/species/226993175/227537549

Justification

Since the description of Cantharellus gintlii there do not appear to be any subsequent records of the species. There is a lack of occurrence data and information on the habitat and ecology of the species, and it is not possible to assess the status of its population or distribution. It is therefore assessed as Data Deficient.

Taxonomic notes

It is probably not a Cantharellus as there are cystidia present, and it has 2-spored basidia (see Velenovský 1920) (I. Olariaga Ibarguren in litt. 2022).

Geographic range

The exact range of this species is unknown, with the type described from 'Bohemia' in present-day Czechia (Velenovský 1920).

Population and Trends

It is only known from the type description.

Population Trend: unknown


Habitat and Ecology

The type specimen was described from warm spruce forests (Velenovský 1920).

Threats

No threats have been directly documented due to a lack of information. However, World Resource Institute (2020) outlines a 12% decrease in forest cover from 2001-2019 in Czechia, primarily as a result of deforestation.

Conservation Actions

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