Assessment Notes

Justification

This is a widespread species that is unlikely to approach the thresholds for consideration as threatened under any criterion. Therefore, Craterellus pallidipes is assessed as Least Concern.


Taxonomic notes


Why suggested for a Global Red List Assessment?


Geographic range

Originally described from Nova Scotia, this is a widespread species of eastern North America occurring southwards from Nova Scotia to the southern Appalachians (Buyck et al. 2010, GBIF 2023).


Population and Trends

Given its wide distribution the population size is expected to be very large. There are no direct data on the population trend, and while it may face some localised threats to its habitat (see World Resources Institute 2023), it is not expected that it would be declining rapidly.

Population Trend: Uncertain


Habitat and Ecology

This is a gregarious forest species, collected under a range of potential hosts including Tsuga, Quercus, Picea and Betula (University of Tennessee Herbarium 2023). It has been collected from the soil, including acidic soils, on moss and on rotting wood (University of Tennessee Herbarium 2023).

Temperate Forest

Threats

While it may face some localised threats, it is unlikely to face any that would impact its overall status significantly.


Conservation Actions


Research needed

Further research into the full distribution of the species could be useful.
