Assessment Notes

Justification

This species is known from only a single occurrence, within secondary dipterocarp lowland forest in Peninsular Malaysia, in the Pasoh Forest Reserve, Negeri Sembilan. Only two specimens are known to occur in this locality, including the type specimen, however information regarding whether this species remains at this locality in the present day is lacking. This species does not appear to be significantly threatened, as it is thought to exist entirely under protection of the Pasoh Forest Reserve. Until further research is carried out to confirm this species’ presence in the Pasoh Forest Reserve, and to determine its specific habitat preferences (including which Shorea species this species associates with), 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 located within the Pasoh Forest Reserve, Negeri Sembilan, Malaysia on the 7th September 2006. An additional specimen of this species is known from the same locality, and was collected 3 days later, on the 10th September 2006. No further information regarding this species’ distribution appears to be known.


Population and Trends

All known records of this species appear to place it within the Pasoh National Forest Reserve, and so it is reasonable to assume that this species is stable and not under significant threat.

Population Trend: Stable


Habitat and Ecology

Little is known regarding the habitat preferences of this species, although this species is known to occur within secondary dipterocarp lowland rain forest near Shorea species. More specific details regarding this species’ habitat preferences are lacking, however.


Threats

This species appears to exist entirely under protection of the Pasoh Forest Reserve and so is likely not under significant threat.


Conservation Actions


Research needed

Further research regarding this species’ habitat preferences and current distribution is required in order to build an accurate assessment of this species.
