Genetic relatedness of 10 strains of opportunistic human pathogenic fungi in the genera Pseudallescheria and Scedosporium and related fungi including Petriella setifera, Graphium tectonae and Ceratocystis fimbriata, were tested by sequencing the entire SSU rDNA. From these molecular data, the imperfect genus Scedosporium can be divided in two, S. prolificans being separable from the S. apiospermum complex. Nearest sexual relatives of S. prolificans seem to be in the microascalean genus… CONTINUE READING
