Preliminary assessment unable to access full type description.
There is limited information available from the species listing, and only one subsequent occurrence record of C. ciliatus. 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.
Cantharellus ciliatus was described in 1966 by E.J.H. Corner in Annals of Botany Memoirs and listed in the Index of Fungi in 1972.
The 1972 listing names it as a synonym of Craterellus incarnatus Quél. which is now a synonym of Cantharellus melanoxeros Desm, the Blackening Chanterelle. GBIF lists Norwegian common names for C. ciliatus that are also used for C. melanoxeros.
However, on GBIF C. ciliatus is an accepted species, which follows Index Fungorum.
Why suggested for a Global Red List Assessment?
Chanterelle species to be assessed as part of the chanterelle comprehensive project - drop as is a synonym.
Range unknown, currently uncertain where type specimen collected - type description needs to be reviewed.
However, one record of a specimen collected from Russia is available on GBIF
Population and Trends
Only known from type description and one record.
Population Trend: Uncertain
Habitat and Ecology
No information available from listing, type description needs to be reviewed.
No known threats.
Confirmation of taxonomic status, population and distribution data and ecology required to better assess species.
