Craterellus parvogriseus is a chanterelle mushroom known from one of collection in India. If it were to be restricted to this one site then it could be highly threatened. However, it is recorded from temperate mixed forest with Querus leucotrichophora and so could be more widespread in South and Southeast Asia. Given the high levels of uncertainty C. parvogriseus is assessed as Data Deficient.
Why suggested for a Global Red List Assessment?
From the type description it appears as if this species is only known from Uttarakhand, Pauri Garhwal district, Adwani-Teka fores in India (Das et al 2017).
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
The genera Craterellus consists of species forming ectomycorrhizal associations with trees. This species has been found growing on the soil under Quercus leucotrichophora in temperate mixed forests of the Western Himalayas.
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.
Surveys and research are required to describe the ecology and to ascertain how widespread this species could be before maing accurate assessment.
