Assessment Notes

Justification

Very small population estimated at 45 mature individuals.


Taxonomic notes

Gloeocantharellus dingleyae is an uncommon large fleshy club fungus not easily mistaken for any other species.


Why suggested for a Global Red List Assessment?

Uncommon and distinctive species known from 3 records in 3 locations with the main population centre subject to increased disturbance from tourism and the impact of invasive species.

Preliniary Category: Endangered. B2 AOO <500km2, or Critically Endangered C1, or Critically Endangered D1


Geographic range


Population and Trends

The species is known from 3 records in 3 locations over a 50 year period. We infer the presence of 3 genotyopes, x 3 to account for undetected colonies, x 5 to convert to an estimate of 45 mature individuals. Extent of Occurrence 200 km2 and Area of Occupancy 12 km2.

Population Trend:


Habitat and Ecology

The nutritional mode of Gloeocantharellus dingleaye is unknown but may be ectomyorrhizal with members of the myrtaceaea and nothofagaceae.


Threats

Two of the populations are in the Waitakare Ranges near popular walking tracks subject to increasing tourism with consequent impact on the immediate areas. These populations are likely to decrease over the next 20 years as the impact of Kauri die-back on the dominant Kauri forest alters the forest structure. Areas are also likely to be disturbed because of disease management activity.
