Assessment Notes

Justification

Since the description of Cantherellus candidissimus 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.


Taxonomic notes

Cantharellus candidissimus was described by Josef Velenovský in 1922 in České Houby and was listed by Petrak in 1931.

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.


Geographic range

Range unknown, described near Loděnice in the present-day Czech Republic from the 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 the ground between herbs and grasses on a dry, siliceous sunny hill.
The extent of habitat and grassland types is unknown.

Temperate Grassland

Threats

No known threats due to limited information about habitat, but if primarily a grassland species it could be sensitive to changes in agricultural management and chemical inputs.
