Assessment Notes

Justification

Since the description of Cantherellus coriaceus there do not appear to be any subsequent records of the species. There is a lack of occurrence data and information on the habitat and ecology of the species, and it is not possible to assess the status of its population or distribution. It is therefore assessed as Data Deficient.


Taxonomic notes

Cantharellus coriaceus was described by G.T. Preuss in 1851 and subsequently listed by P.A. Saccardo in 1887.

Merulius coriaceus is listed as a homotypic synonym of this species on Index Fungorum.

GBIF lists taxonomy of C. coriaceus 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 unknown, type described from Hoyerswerda in ‘Prussia’.
No occurrence data on C. coriaceus or its homotypic synonym Merulius coriaceus available on GBIF.


Population and Trends

Only known from type description.

Population Trend: Uncertain


Habitat and Ecology

Type specimen described on decaying trunks of Aesculus hippocastanum, extent of habitat and forest type unknown.

Temperate Forest

Threats

No known threats due to lack of information about extent of habitat and distribution.


Conservation Actions
