Preliminary assessment unable to access full type description.
There is limited information available from the species listing, and there do not appear to be any subsequent records of Cantharellus decipiens since its description. 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.
Cantharellus decipiens was described in 1968 by Wichanský and listed in the Index of Fungi in 1972.
Note that this preliminary assessment has not been able to identify and access the type source.
Why suggested for a Global Red List Assessment?
Chanterelle species to be assessed as part of the chanterelle comprehensive project.
Range unknown, listing describes C. decipiens from ‘Czechoslovakia’ from the type description.
No occurrence data available on GBIF.
Population and Trends
Only known from type description.
Population Trend: Uncertain
Habitat and Ecology
No information available from listing, type description needs to be reviewed.
No known threats.
Confirmation of taxonomic status, population and distribution data and ecology required to better assess species.
