Preliminary assessment unable to access full type description.
Since the description of Cantherellus clitocybeformis there do not appear to be any subsequent records of the species. There is limited information available from the species listing and with a lack of information on the habitat and ecology of the species, it is not possible to assess the status of its population or distribution. It is therefore assessed as Data Deficient.
Cantharellus clitocybeformis 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 the ground 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 the ground, extent of habitat unknown.
No known threats.
Confirmation of taxonomic status, population and distribution data and ecology required to better assess species.
