There is limited information available from the type description, and only one specimen of C. dutrochetii. 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 dutrochetii was described by J. Turpin and published in 1836 by C. Montagne.
C. dutrochetii was subsequently listed as a synonym of Paxillus panuoides by P.A. Saccardo in 1887. P. panuoides is no longer regarded as a synonym of C. dutrochetii according to Index Fungorum.
Note that GBIF lists C. dutrochetii as a synonym of Tapinella panuoides (Batsch) E.-J.Gilbert, a current name of several P. panuoides varieties.
Why suggested for a Global Red List Assessment?
Chanterelle species to be assessed as part of the chanterelle comprehensive project.
Range unknown, it is unclear where the type was described from, although it may be France, as it was observed from a cellar owned by M. Dutrochet, a member of the l’Institut de France.
Population and Trends
Only known from type description.
Population Trend: Uncertain
Habitat and Ecology
The type is described from a cellar and C. dutrochetii is later included in a description of fungi which do not need light for their normal development (Elfving, 1890).
There is no other information available.
No known threats.
Confirmation of taxonomic status, population and distribution data and ecology required to better assess species.
