Assessment Notes

Justification

Currently, Cantharellus subfloridulus is only known from Central African Republic in Dzanga-Sangha Forest Reserve. If it were to be restricted to this one site it could be highly threatened. However, it was collected in Gilbertiodendron dewevrei forest, which can be found across Central Africa; and so the species’ range could be very large and it could then be Least Concern. Further research is required with regards to the full distribution of the species, and given the current uncertainty C. subfloridulus is assessed here as Data Deficient.
