Assessment Status Notes

Taxonomic notes


Why suggested for a Global Red List Assessment?

Big Blue Pinkgill is confined to poor, unfertilized meadows on calcareous loamy soils An eye-catching, well-known and well sought after species. The fungus is considered to sharply decline throughout Europe, due to ceasing of traditional use of semi-natural grassland with subsequent overgrowth, fertilization of grass land and atmospheric deposition. Red-listed in 15 European countries.
