Since the description of Cantharellus minutus 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 minutus 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.
Range unknown, type described from near Myšlín in the present-day Czech Republic.
No occurrence data available on GBIF.
Population and Trends
Only known from type description.
Population Trend: Uncertain
Habitat and Ecology
Type specimen described from rotting tree stumps in shady damp forest.
The extent of the habitat is unknown.
No documented threats due to lack of information about habitat extent. However, Global Forest Watch outlines a 12% decrease in forest cover from 2001-2019 in the Czech Republic, primarily as a result of deforestation.
Confirmation of taxonomic status, population and distribution data and ecology required to better assess species.
