Assessment Notes

Justification

Catharellus pulcrifolius appears to only be known from the type specimen. This was collected from the Moscow Mountains in western Idaho. Without any further information regarding the species’ distribution and abundance it is not possible to accurately assess this species, and it could theoretically fall into any category. Therefore, it is assessed as Data Deficient.
