Assessment Notes

Preliminary assessment unable to access full type description.

Justification

There is limited information available from the species listing, and only one subsequent occurrence record of C. ciliatus.  With a lack of occurrence data and information on the habitat and ecology of the species, it is not possible to assess the status of its population or distribution.
It is therefore now assessed as Data Deficient.


Taxonomic notes

Cantharellus ciliatus was described in 1966 by E.J.H. Corner in Annals of Botany Memoirs and listed in the Index of Fungi in 1972.

The 1972 listing names it as a synonym of Craterellus incarnatus Quél. which is now a synonym of Cantharellus melanoxeros Desm, the Blackening Chanterelle. GBIF lists Norwegian common names for C. ciliatus that are also used for C. melanoxeros.

However, on GBIF C. ciliatus is an accepted species, which follows Index Fungorum.


Why suggested for a Global Red List Assessment?

Chanterelle species to be assessed as part of the chanterelle comprehensive project.


Geographic range

Range unknown, currently uncertain where type specimen collected - type description needs to be reviewed.
However, one record of a specimen collected from Russia is available on GBIF


Population and Trends

Only known from type description and one record.

Population Trend: Uncertain


Habitat and Ecology

No information available from listing, type description needs to be reviewed.

Unknown

Threats

No known threats.
