Assessment Notes

Justification

Cantharellus iuventateviridis is a recently described species from the Gulf Coast (Buyck et al. 2016).

Data to assess population size, trends and preferred habitat is lacking at this time, therefore I recommend listing as Data Deficient (DD).


Taxonomic notes

Cantharellus iuventateviridis was described from Mississippi, USA (Buyck et al. 2016).

Cantharellus iuventateviridis is the southern ‘sister taxon’ to the very similar looking Cantharellus chicagoensis (Leacock et al. 2016). It is not known at this time if these two species overlap in range.


Why suggested for a Global Red List Assessment?

Cantharellus iuventateviridis is a recently described species from the Gulf Coast (Buyck et al. 2016).

Data to assess population size, trends and preferred habitat is lacking at this time, therefore I recommend listing as Data Deficient (DD).


Geographic range

Currently known from southern Louisiana, USA east into Florida. Being a newly described species (Buyck et al. 2016), distribution is poorly known at this time.


Population and Trends

Being a newly described species (Buyck et al. 2016), population size remains poorly known. It is currently known from seven locations (MyCoPortal 2021). Reports of fungi from much of the range on community science sites like Mushroom Observer and iNaturalist remains low in comparison to other areas of USA, so data to make an informed assessment is lacking.

Population Trend: Uncertain


Habitat and Ecology

Cantharellus iuventateviridis is ectomycorrhizal, likely associated with Water Oak (Quercus nigra), but pine (Pinus spp.) and American Hornbeam (Carpinus caroliniana) were noted in the area (Buyck et al. 2016). Typically fruiting from bare soil in wet or muddy places (Buyck et al. 2016). However these observations pertain to very small sample size; more ecology data is needed to know habitat requirements and restraints of this species.


Threats

No specific threats have been identified at this time with regards to this species. However, more information is needed to make an robust assessment on potential threats.


Conservation Actions

No specific conservation actions have been identified with regards to this species at this time.


Research needed

A better understanding on population numbers, distribution, and trends of Cantharellus iuventateviridis. Well documented collections with detailed habitat notes, and targeted surveys in the Gulf States for this species.

Use and Trade

All North American Cantharellus species are edible, but details are lacking about specifically collecting Cantharellus iuventateviridis.
