Assessment Notes

Justification

There is limited information available from the type description of the species, and no subsequent occurrence records of C. feltgenii.  With a lack of occurrence data and information on the habitat and ecology of the species, it is not possible to assess the status of its population or distribution.
It is therefore now assessed as Data Deficient.


Taxonomic notes

Cantharellus feltgenii was described in 1912 by P. A. Saccardo and A. Trotter, as Cantharellus feltgeni.

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.


Geographic range

C. feltgenii is described from near Helmsingen in central Luxembourg but the extent of its range is unknown.
No occurrence data are available on GBIF.


Population and Trends

Only known from type description.

Population Trend: Uncertain


Habitat and Ecology

The type description for this species identifies it as found on the rotten wood of Fagus species in deciduous forest, but the extent of its habitat is unknown.

Temperate Forest

Threats

No known threats.
