This species has not been recorded for over 100 years, and there are doubts surrounding its taxonomic identity. Therefore, it is not possible to accurately estimate any key parameters and Cantharellus valentinii is assessed as Data Deficient.
Based on the protologue it does not appear to be a Cantharellus (I. Olariaga Ibarguren in litt. 2022), and indeed in the type description there is a suggestion that it could warrant a different genus (Velenovský 1920).
Why suggested for a Global Red List Assessment?
This species has only been recorded from Czechia, with records from Třeboň (in 1915) and Brdy (1919) (Velenovsky 1920).
Population and Trends
Without further information it is not possible to accurately estimate the overall population size and trend.
Population Trend: Uncertain
Habitat and Ecology
This species has been reported from rotting wood, including oak, growing in clumps (Velenovský 1920). No further ecological details are available.
Without more up to date information it is not possible to estimate what threats it may currently face.
Research should investigate the taxonomic identity of this species, and if it is confirmed as a good species, re-discovery of populations in the wild will be important as a start to investigate its wider ecological requirements and to get an idea of its range, population size and trend.
