Assessment Notes

Justification

This species is known from only two collections made in subsequent years in India, Himachal Pradesh, Shimla, Karsog forest. Little information is known regarding this species’ habitat preferences, however it is known to grown in either a gregarious or caespitose mode, and on soil among green grass with P. roxburghii. If this species remains at its known locality, its habitat is likely threatened by logging and wood harvesting, however further information is needed in order to confirm this. Until such research, alongside research into this species’ present wild distribution and specific habitat preferences, arises, this species is listed as DD.


Taxonomic notes


Why suggested for a Global Red List Assessment?

Chanterelle species


Geographic range

This species is known from two specimens, collected from the same locality in August 2007 and August 2008. These specimens were located in India, Himachal Pradesh, Shimla, Karsog forest, at coordinates N 31°24′  E 77°.12′ and at an altitude of 1900m. No further information regarding any other collections of this species appears to be available.


Population and Trends

This species could be in decline, due to logging and wood harvesting at its known locality, however further research is needed in order to confirm this species’ current presence at this locality, as well as the extent to which this species may be threatened here.

Population Trend: Uncertain


Habitat and Ecology

The only information available concerning this species’ habitat preferences is that it grows from a caespitose to gregarious mode and on soil among green grass with P. roxburghii.


Threats

This species may be threatened by logging and wood harvesting at its known locality, however further research is required in order to confirm this, as well as the extent to which this species may be threatened here.


Conservation Actions

Should research suggest that this species’ habitat is indeed threatened, protection of such habitat would be required for its successful conservation.

Resource & habitat protection

Research needed

Further research into this species’ current wild distribution, habitat preferences, and potential threats is therefore also required in order to accurately assess this species.
