Cantharellus eucalyptorum is a chanterelle species found in eucalypt plantations of the central highlands of Madagascar. It is not thought to warrant listing as threatened under any criterion and so is assessed as Least Concern.
Based on Index Fungorum the author string appears to be incorrect above - it should be Cantharellus eucalyptorum Buyck, Randrianj. & V. Hofst.
Why suggested for a Global Red List Assessment?
Cantharellus eucalyptorum is known from Eucalypt plantations of the central highlands of Madagascar (Ariyawansa et al. 2015). Records come from areas around the centre of the country (see Ariyawansa et al. 2015), but it could be more widespread through Eucalyptus plantations. Despite appearing to be associated with introduced vegetation, its closest relative appears to be C. tanzanicus, and so it could be that it has evolved to associate with this introduced vegetation.
