Assessment Notes


This species appears to exist entirely under preservation; information regarding any current wild populations of this species appears to be deficient. Furthermore, information regarding the habitat preferences of this species is lacking, and although this species could be threatened by collectors, further information is needed to confirm this. As a result of these data deficiencies, it is difficult to assess the current population trends of this species, and so until further research yields new relevant information, this species is listed as DD.

Taxonomic notes

Why suggested for a Global Red List Assessment?

Chanterelle species

Geographic range

This species is known from the Yunnan Province, China (Chiu 1973). A record of the type specimen of this species indicates that it was found at the Yu Long Mountain, San Su He Forest, China, and is now preserved under the University of Tennessee Fungal Herbarium (geographic coordinates and information provided by gbif, citation needed).

Population and Trends

The trends of wild populations of this species cannot be determined without further research, and so remain uncertain.

Population Trend: Uncertain

Habitat and Ecology

Little is known about the habitat of this species, other than it was found at the Yu Long Mountain, San Su He Forest, China (Chiu 1973).

Boreal Forest


If any wild populations exist at the locality of this species’ type specimen, it could be threatened by collectors.

Motivation Unknown/Unrecorded

Conservation Actions

The status of this species’ wild populations has not been determined, and so without further research no conservation action can be recommended.

Research needed

Further research into this species’ locality, habitat preferences, and whether it is threatened is needed in order to accurately classify this species.
