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
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.

We investigated the presence of Arcobacter spp. in 205 water samples of freshwater, seawater and sewage in Spain. These bacteria were present in 55.1% of the samples (113/205) and were significantly…
Prevalence of Arcobacter in meat and shellfish.
The results indicated that Arcobacter species are widely distributed in the food products studied, and this food survey is the first in which five of the seven accepted Arcobacteria species have been isolated.
Acremonium phylogenetic overview and revision of Gliomastix, Sarocladium, and Trichothecium
Over 200 new sequences are generated for members of the genus Acremonium and related taxa including ribosomal small subunit sequences (SSU) for phylogenetic analysis and large subunit (LSU) sequences…
ESCMID and ECMM joint clinical guidelines for the diagnosis and management of mucormycosis 2013.
These European Society for Clinical Microbiology and Infectious Diseases and European Confederation of Medical Mycology Joint Clinical Guidelines focus on the diagnosis and management of mucormycosis and strongly recommend continuing treatment until complete response demonstrated on imaging and permanent reversal of predisposing factors.
Alternaria infections: laboratory diagnosis and relevant clinical features.
The genus Alternaria contains several species of melanized hyphomycetes that cause opportunistic human infections and shows a good response to conventional antifungal drugs, with Posaconazole and voriconazole being promising therapeutic options.
Scedosporium apiospermum: changing clinical spectrum of a therapy-refractory opportunist.
The opportunist Scedosporium apiospermum (teleomorph: Pseudallescheria boydii) is reviewed, which is strongly promoted by agricultural and particularly by industrial pollution.
