Contributions to a revision of the genus Trichosporon.
The genus Trichosporon was found to be fairly homogeneous on the basis of a phylogenetic analysis of partial 26S rRNA sequences, with the exception of T. pullulans which proved to be unrelated.
Diversity and Significance of Mold Species in Norwegian Drinking Water
The present results indicate that the mycobiota of water should be considered when the microbiological safety and quality of drinking water are assessed, and molds in drinking water should possibly be included in the Norwegian water supply and drinking water regulations.
Phylogenetic Analysis Reveals a High Prevalence of Sporothrix brasiliensis in Feline Sporotrichosis Outbreaks
It is suggested that cats represent a major host and the main source of cat and human S. brasiliensis infections in Brazil and the epidemic has at least two distinct sources.
Species Diversity and Polymorphism in the Exophiala spinifera Clade Containing Opportunistic Black Yeast-Like Fungi
ABSTRACT A monophyletic group of black yeast-like fungi containing opportunistic pathogens around Exophiala spinifera is analyzed using sequences of the small-subunit (SSU) and internal transcribed
Sarcinomyces petricola, a new microcolonial fungus from marble in the Mediterranean basin
A new meristematic black yeast species, Sarcinomyces petricola, is described and classified as an anamorph member of the ascomycete family Herpotrichiellaceae (Chaetothyriales).
Phylogenetic relationships of human-pathogenic Cladosporium (Xylohypha) species inferred from partial LS rRNA sequences.
Human-pathogenic and saprophytic Cladosporium species were found to be phylogenetically distinct from each other and were considered to be anamorphs of Herpotrichiellaceae and Mycosphaerellaceae, respectively, and should be classified in different anamorph-genera.
Coniosporium perforans and C. apollinis, two new rock-inhabiting fungi isolated from marble in the Sanctuary of Delos (Cyclades, Greece)
Phylogenetic analysis suggests that Phaeosclera dematioides is related to the ascomycetous order Dothideales and Monodictys castaneae to the Pleosporales, whereas the three Coniosporium species studied are a sister group to the Herpotrichiellaceae (Chaetothyriales).
Molecular diagnostics of clinical strains of filamentous Basidiomycetes.
Six strains of filamentous Basidiomycetes were found to belong to the teleomorph genera Schizophyllum or Coprinus, whereas five could not be identified unequivocally.
Nutritional physiology and taxonomy of human-pathogenic Cladosporium-Xylohypha species.
Physiological profiles of type, authentic and some additional isolates of Cladosporium-Xylohypha species of purported herpotrichiellaceous relationship are established and a diagnostic key for the recognized Cladophialophora species and to morphologically similar taxa is provided.
High prevalence of the neurotrope Exophiala dermatitidis and related oligotrophic black yeasts in sauna facilities
Summary. The black yeast Exophiala dermatitidis, an agent of fatal brain infections in East Asia, is common in European steam baths. The related fungi Sarcinomyces phaeomuriformis and Exophiala
