Sporothrix brasiliensis, S. globosa, and S. mexicana, Three New Sporothrix Species of Clinical Interest
TLDR
The phenotypic features for recognizing the new species Sporothrix brasiliensis, S. globosa, and S. luriei are the morphology of the sessile pigmented conidia, growth at 30, 35, and 37°C, and the assimilation of sucrose, raffinose, and ribitol, which are key for recognizing these species.
Developments in Fungal Taxonomy
TLDR
Analyses of rRNA and rDNA sequences constitute an important complement of the morphological criteria needed to allow clinical fungi to be more easily identified and placed on a single phylogenetic tree.
Fungal Planet description sheets: 214–280
Novel species of microfungi described in the present study include the following from South Africa: Cercosporella dolichandrae from Dolichandra unguiscati, Seiridium podocarpi from Podocarpus
In Vitro Antifungal Susceptibilities of Five Species of Sporothrix
TLDR
Ninety-two isolates belonging to five species of the Sporothrix schenckii complex were tested in vitro against 12 antifungal agents, using a reference microdilution method, and terbinafine was the most active drug.
Sporothrix luriei: a rare fungus from clinical origin.
TLDR
It is proposed as a species different from Sporothrix schenckii on the basis of phenotypic characteristics and a multilocus sequence analysis.

Novel species of fungi described in the present study include the following from Malaysia: Castanediella eucalypti from Eucalyptus pellita, Codinaea acacia from Acacia mangium, Emarcea eucalyptigena
Fungal Planet description sheets: 400–468
TLDR
Novel species of fungi described in the present study include the following from Australia: Vermiculariopsiella eucalypti, Mulderomyces natalis, Fusicladium paraamoenum, Neotrimmatostroma paraexcentricum, and Pseudophloeospora eUCalyptorum.
Molecular Phylogeny of the Pseudallescheria boydii Species Complex: Proposal of Two New Species
TLDR
A morphological and molecular study involving numerous strains of clinical or environmental origins and from different countries has demonstrated that P. boydii is a species complex and Pseudallescheria minutispora and Scedosporium aurantiacum are clearly phylogenetically separated from the other species studied and are proposed as new.
Different virulence levels of the species of Sporothrix in a murine model.
TLDR
Findings showed that S. brasiliensis and S. schenckii were the most virulent species, and suggest that lesional mechanisms could be species-specific, and showed that fungal spread to kidneys, lungs, spleen, brain, and testicles was widespread.
