Assessment Notes

Justification

Information regarding this species’ geographic distribution, habitat preferences, and potential threats appears to be deficient, although this species is thought to have occurred in Tibet, as described in Zang 1980. This deficiency in information makes it difficult to assess the current population trends of this species, and so until relevant information from further research arises, this species is listed as DD.


Taxonomic notes


Why suggested for a Global Red List Assessment?

Chanterelle species


Geographic range

This species was initially described as occurring in Tibet, China (Zang 1980).


Population and Trends

The current status of any wild populations of this species cannot be determined without further research, and so the trends of this species’ populations remain uncertain.

Population Trend: Uncertain


Habitat and Ecology

Although this species is known to occur within Tibet, further information on its habitat preferences or more specific locality is deficient.


Threats

Further research is needed to assess the threats which may be impacting this species, given the uncertainty in its geographic distribution.


Conservation Actions

No conservation action can be recommended at this time, given the deficiency in habitat and geographic distribution information associated with this species.


Research needed

Research into this species’ distribution, habitats, ecology, and the threats affecting this species is required in order for it to be accurately classified.
