There is limited information available from the type description of the species, and no subsequent occurrence records of C. feltgenii. 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 feltgenii was described in 1912 by P. A. Saccardo and A. Trotter, as Cantharellus feltgeni.
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.
C. feltgenii is described from near Helmsingen in central Luxembourg but the extent of its range is unknown.
No occurrence data are available on GBIF.
Population and Trends
Only known from type description.
Population Trend: Uncertain
Habitat and Ecology
The type description for this species identifies it as found on the rotten wood of Fagus species in deciduous forest, but the extent of its habitat is unknown.
No known threats.
Confirmation of taxonomic status, population and distribution data and ecology required to better assess species.
