Why suggested for a Global Red List Assessment?

A widespread species. If there is no evidence of rapid declines globally, this species will likely qualify as Least Concern.


Geographic range

This species has a northern distribution (Sterry 2011), and so records from more tropical and southern areas may be mis-identifications or introduced.


Population and Trends

With such a wide range, the population size is suspected to be very large.

Population Trend:


Habitat and Ecology

The synonymous Cantharellus aurora is said to occur on alkaline soils in conifer woods (Evans and Kibby 2004).
