Assessment Notes

Justification

This species is known only from a single locality and collection, made in Brazil, Pernambuco, Igarassu, in the Refugio Ecologico Charles Darwin in July of 2012. The only known information regarding this species’ habitat preferences is that it grows gregariously on soil in tropical rain forest. If any wild populations of this species remain at its known locality, they are unlikely to be significantly threatened, existing under protection of the Refugio Ecologico Charles Darwin. Therefore, this species’ population is assumed stable, but further research is needed in order to confirm this. Until further research regarding this species’ current population details and its habitat preferences is carried out, this species is listed as DD.


Taxonomic notes


Why suggested for a Global Red List Assessment?

Chanterelle species


Geographic range

The holotype of this species was found in Brazil, Pernambuco, Igarassu, Refugio Ecologico Charles Darwin in July of 2012. This appears to constitute the only known locality of this species.


Population and Trends

If any wild populations of this species remain at its known locality, they are unlikely to be significantly threatened, existing under protection of the Refugio Ecologico Charles Darwin. Therefore, this species’ population is assumed stable, but further research is needed in order to confirm this.

Population Trend: Stable


Habitat and Ecology

The only known information regarding this species’ habitat preferences is that it grows gregariously on soil in tropical rain forest.


Threats

This species appears to exist under protection of the Refugio Ecologico Charles Darwin, and so is unlikely to be significantly threatened.


Conservation Actions


Research needed

No further conservation action can be recommended for this species, however further research into its wild distribution, habitat preferences, and any unseen potential threats is required in order to build an accurate assessment of this species.
