Synonym - Cantharellus aurora
A widespread species. If there is no evidence of rapid declines globally, this species will likely qualify as Least Concern.
This species has a northern distribution (Sterry 2011), and so records from more tropical and southern areas may be mis-identifications or introduced.
With such a wide range, the population size is suspected to be very large.
The synonymous Cantharellus aurora is said to occur on alkaline soils in conifer woods (Evans and Kibby 2004).
This is an edible species (Evans and Kibby 2004, as synonym Cantharellus aurora).
