Since the description of Cantherellus benesii there do not appear to be any subsequent records of the species. There is a lack of occurrence data and 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 benecii was described by Josef Velenovský and Albert Pilát in Mykologia in 1925 and was listed by Petrak in 1937.
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 in pine woods in ‘Bohemia’ from type specimen.
No occurrence data available on GBIF.
Population and Trends
Only known from type description.
Population Trend: Uncertain
Habitat and Ecology
Petrak’s list (1937) records the type specimen was described in sandy pine woods, but the extent of habitat is unknown.
No major threats identified due to lack of information about habitat extent and ecology of species.
Confirmation of taxonomic status, distribution data and ecology required to better assess species.
