Assessment Status Notes

Justification

Hypholoma capnoides is widespread edible wood inhabiting fungus in Europe and North America. There is no evidence of decline. It can be locally abundant where suitable habitat exists. Therefore, it is assessed as Least Concern (LC).


Taxonomic notes


Why suggested for a Global Red List Assessment?


Geographic range

Hypholoma capnoides is common and widely distributed throughout Europe and North America and are also in many other parts of the world. The area of occupancy (AOO) of this species is much larger than 2,000 km², and its extent of occurrence (EOO) is much larger than 20,000 km².


Population and Trends

The population size is likely to be very large since this is such a widespread species and more or less stable. There is no indication of any decline. It may rather has increased as wood types formed by cutting likely has increased due to increased forest production.

Population Trend:


Habitat and Ecology

Hypholoma capnoides is a wood-inhabiting fungus growing single or in small tufts on decaying coniferous wood, for example on or near decaying conifer logs, on old tree stumps and roots. It can be common after clear-cuts and in plantations.


Threats

There are no major threats to this species.


Conservation Actions

No conservation measures are needed for this species since it is widespread and there are no major threats to it.


Research needed


Use and Trade
