Assessment Notes

Preliminary assessment unable to access full type description.

Justification

Since the description of Cantharellus deliciosus there do not appear to be any subsequent records of the species. 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

Described by Francesco Briganti under the basionym Merulius deliciosus in 1878 and subsequently as Cantharellus deliciosus by P.A. Saccardo in 1916. It was listed in Sylloge fungorum omnium hucusque cognitorum in 1925.

Note that C. deliciosus is listed as a synonym of M. deliciosus in GBIF.
