Assessment Notes

Justification

This species is known only from two collections, made in the same location (India, Uttarakhand, Pauri Garhwal, Bharsar forest, at coordinates N 29°45′  E 78°.55′ and at an altitude of 2350m) in September 2008 and September 2009. Little is known regarding the habitat preferences of this species, but this species is known to grow on the soil beneath Cedrus deodara. This species does not appear to be threatened at its known locality, however further research is needed in order to confirm this. Research into this species’ present distribution and habitat preferences is also required in order to assess the current population trends of this species, and so until such research is carried out, 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 collections made in subsequent years in India, Uttarakhand, Pauri Garhwal, Bharsar forest, at coordinates N 29°45′  E 78°.55′ and at an altitude of 2350m. The two known collections of this species were made in September 2008 and September 2009.


Population and Trends

This species is not thought to be significantly threatened, and so it is reasonable to assume that this species’ population is stable.

Population Trend: Stable


Habitat and Ecology

This species is known to grow from a gregarious to caespitose mode, on soil under Cedrus deodara.


Threats

There don’t appear to be any records in literature of this species or its habitat being significantly threatened.


Conservation Actions


Research needed

This species is not significantly threatened and so no conservation action can be recommended at this time, however further research into this species’ present distribution, specific habitat preferences, and potential unseen threats is required in order to accurately assess this species.
