Assessment Notes

Justification

Cantharellus pallens is a widespread and common species of chanterelle. It is not thought that it would approach the thresholds for consideration as threatened under any criterion, and so it is assessed as Least Concern.


Taxonomic notes


Why suggested for a Global Red List Assessment?


Geographic range

Cantharellus pallens is a widespread species of Europe, ranging from the Mediterranean (where it also occurs in Morocco) to Fennoscandia, although it is more frequent towards the south of its range (Olariaga et al. 2017, I. Olariaga Ibarguren in litt. 2022).


Population and Trends

The overall population size of this widespread species is likely to be very large, and is possibly the most common species in the genus in central and southern Europe (I. Olariaga Ibarguren in litt. 2022).

Population Trend: Uncertain


Habitat and Ecology

This is a forest dwelling species, occurring on rich to acidic soils, in association with a range of different tree species (Olariaga et al. 2017). These are predominantly deciduous, but it has been found with others such as Pinus, Arctostaphyllos and Picea as well as Cistus (I. Olariaga Ibarguren in litt. 2022).

Boreal ForestTemperate Forest

Threats

While it may face some localised threats, especially as it appears to prefer mature forest (I. Olariaga Ibarguren in litt. 2022), it is not thought to face any threats that would impact its status at the species level.


Conservation Actions

No actions are currently thought to be necessary.


Research needed


Use and Trade

This is an edible species (e.g. Rosas et al. 2017).
