Taxonomic notes


Why suggested for a Global Red List Assessment?


Geographic range

Kuehneromyces mutabilis is common and widely distributed throughout Europe, also common parts of North America and occurs in Russian parts of Asia, Japan and in Australia. 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

Kuehneromyces mutabilis is a wood-inhabiting fungus normally growing in tufts, on stumps, felled trunks and logs of broad-leaf trees, particularly birch, more rarely on coniferous wood.
