Assessment Notes

Justification

There is limited information available from the type description of C. fascicularis, and 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.


Taxonomic notes

Cantharellus fascicularis was described by F. Strauss in 1853 and listed by P.A. Saccardo in 1887.

It was listed under its homotypic synonym Merulius fascicularis by O. Kuntze in 1891.

Note that lists taxonomy of C. fascicularis 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 oak in Bavaria.

No occurrence data for C. fascicularis, or its homotypic synonym M. fascicularis, are available on GBIF.


Population and Trends

Only known from type.

Population Trend: Uncertain


Habitat and Ecology

Type described from a specimen found in September at the root of Quercus in Bavaria but the extent of its habitat is unknown.  Early listing notes that C. fascicularis is unlike any other mushroom but no further information is available (Saccardo, 1887).

Temperate Forest

Threats

No known threats.
