Assessment Notes

The content on this page is fetched from The IUCN Red List of Threatened Species: https://www.iucnredlist.org/species/226993128/227535856

Justification

There is limited information available on this species, and no subsequent occurrence records of Cantharellus feltgenii after the type description. 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.

Taxonomic notes

It is not thought to be cantharelloid due to globose spores and growing on dead wood (Saccardo and Trotter 1912) (I. Olariaga Ibarguren in litt. 2022).

Geographic range

Cantharellus feltgenii is described from near Helmsingen in central Luxembourg (see Saccardo and Trotter 1912).

Population and Trends

It is only known from the type description.

Population Trend: unknown


Habitat and Ecology

The type description for this species identifies it as found on the rotten wood of Fagus species in deciduous forest (see Saccardo and Trotter 1912).

Threats

No threats can be discerned without further information.

Conservation Actions

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