Assessment Notes

The content on this page is fetched from The IUCN Red List of Threatened Species: https://www.iucnredlist.org/species/189311483/189329885

Justification

This species is known from only one collection, made in the Songnisan National Park, Republic of Korea. This specimen was found growing on soil under Quercus mongolica and Abies holophylla. Although Q. mongolica and A. holophylla are thought to be threatened by logging and (in the case of the latter) fires, this species is only known from an area under the protection of the Songnisan National Park, although further research should be carried out to confirm whether it is truly restricted to this locality. Therefore, until further research into this species' distribution, habitat preferences, and potential threats is carried out, this species is listed as Data Deficient.

Geographic range

Cantharellus subvaginatus is only known the holotype collection from 2013 from Mt. Songnisan, Bo-Eun gun, in the Songnisan National Park in the Republic of Korea (Buyck et al. 2018).

Population and Trends

There is no quantitative information regarding the population size and trend. The only known site is located within the Songnisan National Park, and it is reasonable to assume that this site is protected and not under threat.

Population Trend: stable


Habitat and Ecology

The genus Cantharellus consists of species that form ectomycorrhizal associations with trees. This species has been found growing on soil under Quercus mongolica and Abies holophylla (Buyck et al. 2018).

Threats

This species has been found growing on soil under Quercus mongolica and Abies holophylla. Although Q. mongolica and A. holophylla are thought to be threatened by logging and (in the case of the latter) fires (Katsuki et al. 2013, Barstow 2018), this species is currently only known the Songnisan National Park, and it is not thought to be threatened at this locality. However, without further information regarding the ecology and distribution of the species it is not possible to accurately assess the specific threats to Cantharellus subvaginatus.

Conservation Actions

Further information is required regarding this species' ecology, population distribution and habitat preferences in order to build an accurate assessment of this species.
