A widespread species. If there is no evidence of rapid declines globally, this species will likely qualify as Least Concern.
This species is widespread across the northern hemisphere (see GBIF; Tricholoma portentosum (Fr.) Quél. in GBIF Secretariat (2019). GBIF Backbone Taxonomy. Checklist dataset https://doi.org/10.15468/39omei accessed via GBIF.org on 2019-11-12).
With such a large range, the population size is suspected to be very large.
Population Trend: Uncertain
