Assessment Notes

Justification

This species is known from only a single collection, made in India, Uttarakhand, Pauri Garhwal district, Adwani-Teka forest at an altitude of 1843m. This species is known to grow on the soil adjacent to the root outlets of Quercus leucotrichophora A. Camus in the temperate mixed forest of the Western Himalayas. Information regarding the potential threats to this species is deficient, and so it is difficult to assess the current population trends of this species. Until further research is carried out regarding this species’ habitat preferences, current wild population distribution, and potential threats, this species is listed as DD.

Why suggested for a Global Red List Assessment?

Chanterelle species


Geographic range

The holotype of this species is known from only a single collection, in India, Uttarakhand, Pauri Garhwal district, Adwani-Teka forest, at coordinates N 30° 06.858’ E 078° 45.466’, and at an altitude of 1843m.


Population and Trends

Information regarding the threats affecting this species, as well as its current population status, appears to be deficient, and so the current population trends of this species remain uncertain.

Population Trend: Uncertain


Habitat and Ecology

This species has been found growing on the soil adjacent to the root outlets of Quercus leucotrichophora A. Camus in temperate mixed forests of the Western Himalayas.


Threats

Information regarding the potential threats affecting this species is deficient, and is likely to remain as such until further research regarding this issue is completed.


Conservation Actions


Research needed

Due to a deficiency in information regarding the current population distribution, potential threats, and habitat preferences of this species, no conservation action can be recommended at this time, and so further research into this species is required for building an accurate assessment of this species.
