Since the description of Cantherellus acicularis there do not appear to be any subsequent records of the species. There is a lack of information on the habitat and ecology of the species, and it is not possible to assess the status of its population or distribution. It is therefore assessed as Data Deficient.
Cantharellus acicularis was described by Josef Velenovský in 1939 in Novitates Mycologicae and was listed by Petrak in 1950.
GBIF lists taxonomy as doubtful.
Why suggested for a Global Red List Assessment?
Chanterelle species to be assessed as part of the chanterelle comprehensive project.
Range unknown, described on needles in ‘Czechoslovakia’ from type specimen.
No occurrence data available on GBIF.
Population and Trends
Only known from type specimen.
Population Trend: Uncertain
Habitat and Ecology
Type specimen described on needles, extent of habitat and forest type unknown.
No major threats identified due to lack of information about habitat extent and ecology of species.
Confirmation of taxonomic status and records of presence and distribution required to better assess species.
