Assessment Notes

Justification

Although this species has been observed growing in Maharashtra, India, information regarding any further occurrences of this species, as well as its habitat preferences and potential threats, is lacking. Further research is needed in order to address these data deficiencies, as it is currently difficult to determine the population trends of this species. Therefore, until further information arises from research, this species is listed as DD.


Taxonomic notes


Why suggested for a Global Red List Assessment?

Chanterelle species


Geographic range

Little information appears to be available regarding the distribution of this species, however it is known to grow in Maharashtra, India (Senthilarasu 2014)


Population and Trends

The distribution and habitat preferences of this species are uncertain. Information on the current status of wild populations of this species are similarly uncertain, and is likely to remain as such without further research into the habitat and distribution of this species, and the threats which may potentially affect it.

Population Trend: Uncertain


Habitat and Ecology

This species is thought to grow ‘on soil’ (Ranadive and Jagtap 2013). Little further information is know about this species’ habitat preferences and ecology.


Threats

This species is only known to occurs within Maharashtra, India, but no specific geographic information is known. Therefore, it is difficult to assign any threats to this species without further research.


Conservation Actions

The current status of any wild populations of this species is unknown at this time, and so no conservation action can be recommended.


Research needed

Much research is needed regarding the distribution and habitat of this species, as well as the potential threats affecting it, in order to classify this species accurately.
