Assessment Notes

Justification

Since the description of Cantherellus corconticus 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.


Taxonomic notes

Cantharellus corconticus was described by Josef Velenovský in 1920 in České Houby and was listed by Petrak in 1930.

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 on ridges of the Giant Mountains in ‘Bohemia’ in the present-day Czech Republic from the type specimen.
No occurrence data available on GBIF.


Population and Trends

Only known from type description.

Population Trend: Uncertain


Habitat and Ecology

Type specimen described on a layer of withered/decaying Polytrichum species on mountain ridges.
The extent of the habitat is unknown.

Other

Threats

No known threats due to limited information about habitat and ecology.


Conservation Actions
