Assessment Notes

Justification

Cantharellus radiatus is a European mushroom, but there are some uncertainties regarding the collecting locality for the type specimen. It also appears to only be known from the type specimen, making it difficult to get an accurate idea of the true status of this species. Thus it is assessed as Data Deficient.


Taxonomic notes


Why suggested for a Global Red List Assessment?

Chanterelle project


Geographic range

There is some uncertainty over the collecting locality of this species, which appears to be known only from the type. Velenovsky (1920) gives the locality as forest in Sliven, in a book on Czech mushrooms. However, Sliven is in Bulgaria; thus creating some confusion.


Population and Trends

There is no quantitative information regarding population size and trends.

Population Trend: Uncertain


Habitat and Ecology

This species was collected in forest, amongst mosses by spruce trees (Velenovsky 1920).

Temperate Forest

Threats
