Assessment Notes

Justification

This species is known to occur within the Tbilisi National Park, Georgia, and has been found growing under Fagus orientalis and with scattered Malus and Taxus baccata, on probably calcareous ground and calcareous eutric cambisol soil. This species does not appear to be significantly threatened at this locality, however further research should be carried out in order to assess whether this species remains at this locality, and whether it remains under protection. Until such research is completed, yielding new and relevant information to this assessment, this species is listed as DD, although it is likely that it could qualify for criterion D in the future.


Taxonomic notes


Why suggested for a Global Red List Assessment?

Chanterelle species


Geographic range

The holotype of this species was collected in Georgia, Ghulelebi, Tbilisi National Park, under Fagus orientalis on probably calcareous eutric cambisol soil, on the 29th July 2012. A further specimen was found in the same locality with scattered Malus and Taxus baccata, on probably calcareous ground, on the same date. No further records of this species appear to be available.


Population and Trends

This species is not thought to be significantly threatened, and appears to exist entirely under protection of the Tbilisi National Park. Therefore, this species’ population is thought to be stable.

Population Trend: Stable


Habitat and Ecology

This species has been found in the Tbilisi National Park under Fagus orientalis and with scattered Malus and Taxus baccata, on probably calcareous ground and calcareous eutric cambisol soil.


Threats

This species appears to exist entirely under protection of the Tbilisi National Park, and so it is unlikely to be significantly threatened.


Conservation Actions


Research needed

Further research into whether this species exists at its known locality, as well as its specific habitat preferences would be useful in building an accurate assessment of this species.
