Since the description of Cantherellus cuneiformis there do not appear to be any subsequent records of the species. With a lack of occurrence data and information on the habitat and ecology of the species, and it is not possible to assess the status of its population or distribution. It is therefore assessed as Data Deficient.
Cantharellus cuneiformis was described by E.M. Fries in 1821 in Sytema Mycologicum, where it appears as M. cuneiformis.
Carl von Linné‘s Systema vegetabilium of 1827 includes a listing of Merulius cuneiformis with ‘Surinam’ as the location. Clarification whether this refers to the same species would assist in reviewing preliminary assessment, and its geographic range.
GBIF lists taxonomy as doubtful.
Why suggested for a Global Red List Assessment?
Chanterelle species to be assessed as part of the chanterelle comprehensive project.
Range unknown, no location in type description.
No occurrence data available on GBIF.
Population and Trends
Only known from type description.
Population Trend: Uncertain
Habitat and Ecology
Species found on ‘rotten tree’ in April and May from the type description, but extent of habitat unknown.
No known threats.
Confirmation of taxonomic status, population and distribution data and ecology required to better assess species.
