is a member of the C. cinnabarinus
complex. Currently known from Missouri to Indiana, USA, but being recently described (2016) data are lacking, and the range is likely to extend throughout the Midwest and Mid-Atlantic region. Until the range, population size and habitat associations can be better defined, this species is assessed as Data Deficient (DD).
is a recently described member of the C. cinnabarinus
complex (Buyck et al.
2016), and for years has been recorded under the name C. cinnabarinus
The range of this species is largely unknown, being a recently described member of the Cantharellus cinnabarinus
complex. It was described from near St Louis, Missouri, USA. Voucher and sequenced confirmed collections occur east into Indiana. The species' range is probably much wider than currently known, likely throughout the Midwest and Mid-Atlantic region.
Population and Trends
Being a recently described, cryptic species little is known of this species' population status or trends. Distinguishing this species from Cantharellus cinnabarinus from photographs or in the field will go a long way in starting to understand population dynamics.
Population Trend: unknown
Habitat and Ecology
This species is ectomycorrhizal, likely with oaks (Quercus
spp.), and possibly with other hardwoods. Little has been reported about the ecology for this species and more research is needed.
No specific threats have been identified at this time with regards to this species.
No specific conservation actions are needed with regards to this species. The range, habitat associations, and key identification features of Cantharellus corallinus
should be clarified. Records of C. cinnabarinu
s should be scrutinized, as some may be C. corallinus
Use and Trade
This species is edible, and is collected for food.
