There is very little information regarding this species. It is known to have been collected from the Bering Strait, during a 19th Century expedition, but there is no further information regarding its abundance, habitats etc. Given the high levels of uncertainty around the status of the species, therefore, it is assessed as Data Deficient.
Why suggested for a Global Red List Assessment?
Cantharellus behringensis is only known from the Bering Strait between Russia and Alaska, USA (see Eaton et al. 1857-60).
Population and Trends
There is no quantitative information regarding the population size and trend.
Population Trend: Uncertain
Habitat and Ecology
There is no information regarding the species’ habitat and ecology.
Further information regarding the species’ full distribution is required in order to assess the species’ major threats. However, given that it has been collected so far north, it is possible that climate change could be impacting the species.
Habitat shifting & alteration
Further research is required in order to get clearer information on the full distribution of the species, its ecological requirements and the threats it may face.
