There is limited information available from the type description of the species, and no subsequent occurrence records of C. canalipes or the species for which it is a homotypic synonym. With a lack of occurrence data and 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 now assessed as Data Deficient.
Cantharellus canalipes was described in 1912 by P. A. Saccardo and A. Trotter, but is listed as a homotypic synonym of Dictyolus canalipes (described by Lázaro Ibiza in 1907 ).
The taxonomy of D. canalipes is also listed as doubtful on GBIF.
Why suggested for a Global Red List Assessment?
Chanterelle species to be assessed as part of the chanterelle comprehensive project.
Saccardo and Trotter (1912) listing describes species from the Casa de Campo area of Madrid.
Extent of range is unknown.
No occurrence data are available on GBIF for C. canalipes or Dictyolus canalipes, for which it is a homotypic synonym.
Population and Trends
Only known from type specimen.
Population Trend: Uncertain
Habitat and Ecology
The type description for this species’ habitat is ‘to land’ in Casa de Campo, a park area in Madrid, no further information is available.
No known threats.
Confirmation of taxonomic status, population and distribution data and ecology required to better assess species.
