Assessment Notes

Justification

This species appears to be almost entirely lacking in geographic information, save for a report from Peninsular Malaysia (Corner 1966). Information regarding the habitat preferences of this species is similarly deficient. Although this species could be threatened by deforestation for palm oil harvesting, research is required to confirm this, as well as whether this species exists within Peninsular Malaysia now. Therefore, this species is listed as DD until further information arises regarding its distribution, habitat preferences, and potential threats.


Taxonomic notes


Why suggested for a Global Red List Assessment?

Chanterelle species


Geographic range

This species was initially found within Peninsular Malaysia (Corner 1966). There appear to be no other records of this species inside or outside of protection, and none with geographical coordinates.


Population and Trends

The current population trends of this species cannot presently be determined, due to a distinct lack of location and population data.

Population Trend: Uncertain


Habitat and Ecology

Information on this species’ habitat and ecology is unknown.


Threats

This species may be threatened by deforestation for palm oil harvesting, however because its exact locality and habitat is unknown, further research is required to confirm this.


Conservation Actions

Because information on the population status and locality of this species is severely limited, no conservation action can be recommended at this time.


Research needed

Much research is required into the population status of this species, its locality, habitat and ecology, and the possible threats affecting it in order to accurately categorise this species.
