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.
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.
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.
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.
Confirmation of taxonomic status, population and distribution data and ecology required to better assess species.
