Suillus grevillei is a widespread edible ectomycorrhizal fungus in Eurasia and North Ameri-ca. There is no evidence of decline. It can be locally abundant where suitable habitat ex-ists. Therefore, it is assessed as Least Concern (LC).


Taxonomic notes


Why suggested for a Global Red List Assessment?


Geographic range

Suillus grevillei is common in Europe, Asia and North America. The area of occupancy (AOO) of this species is much larger than 2,000 km², and its extent of occurrence (EOO) is much larger than 20,000 km².


Population and Trends

The population size is likely to be very large since this is such a widespread species and more or less stable. There is no indication of any decline.

Population Trend:


Habitat and Ecology
