Assessment Notes

Taxonomic notes

Described by Malençon as Cantharellus cibarius var. alborufescens in 1975 and as C. alborufescens by Papetti & S. Alberti in 1999.

A recent multigene phylogenetic study that tested samples of C. alborufescens from Italy, Spain, France and the type from Morocco found they were correctly attributed to C. alborufescens, and were distinct from Cantharellus cibarius (Olariaga et al, 2017).

Note that GBIF lists C. alborufescens as a synonym of C. cibarius. Only occurrence data listed under the name of C. alborufescens is taken into account for this preliminary assessment.
