Assessment Notes

The content on this page is fetched from The IUCN Red List of Threatened Species: https://www.iucnredlist.org/species/189310326/217823393

Justification

Craterellus parvogriseus is a chanterelle mushroom known from one collection in India. If it were to be restricted to this one site then it could be highly threatened. However, it is recorded from temperate mixed forest with Querus leucotrichophora and so could be more widespread in South and Southeast Asia. Given the high levels of uncertainty C. parvogriseus is assessed as Data Deficient.

Geographic range

From the type description it appears as if this species is only known from the Adwani-Teka forest, Pauri Garhwal district in Uttarakhand, India (Das et al. 2017).

Population and Trends

Information regarding the threats affecting this species, as well as its current population status, appears to be deficient, and so the current population trends of this species remain uncertain.

Population Trend: unknown


Habitat and Ecology

The genus Craterellus consists of species forming ectomycorrhizal associations with trees. This species has been found growing on the soil under Quercus leucotrichophora in temperate mixed forests of the Western Himalayas (Das et al. 2017).

Threats

Information regarding the potential threats affecting this species is deficient, and is likely to remain as such until further research is completed.

Conservation Actions

Surveys and research are required to describe the ecology and to ascertain how widespread this species could be before making an accurate assessment.
