Assessment Notes

Justification

Since the description of Cantharellus morchellocephalus there do not appear to be any subsequent records of the species. There is limited information available from the type description and with a lack of information on the habitat and ecology of the species, it is not possible to assess the status of its population or distribution. It is therefore assessed as Data Deficient.


Taxonomic notes

Cantharellus morchellocephalus was described in 1837 by C. Montagne.

It was listed by P.A. Saccardo as Stylobates morchelliformis in 1887, but this is not listed as a synonym on Index Fungorum.

GBIF lists taxonomy as doubtful.


Why suggested for a Global Red List Assessment?

Chanterelle species to be assessed as part of the chanterelle comprehensive project.


Geographic range

Range is unknown, unclear where type described from.

No occurrence data are available on GBIF.


Population and Trends

Only known from type.

Population Trend: Uncertain


Habitat and Ecology

Type described from a shaded garden, but extent and type of habitat unknown.

Unknown

Threats

No known threats.


Conservation Actions
