Cladophialophora

Cladophialophora

(klad'ō-fī'al-of'ōr-ă),
A dematiaceous hyphomycetous genus of fungi previously placed in the genera Cladosporium or Zylohypha. The genus differs from Cladosporium microscopically by lacking conidiophores and prominent hila, and by producing long, nonfragile (rather than fragile) chains of conidia. It differs physiologically by resistance to cycloheximide. Genus includes several species, all of which may be pathogenic to humans.

Cladophialophora

(klăd″ō-fī″ă-lŏf′ĕ-ră) [NL.]
A genus of pigmented soil fungi that sometimes cause cutaneous, subcutaneous, or intracerebral infections in humans, often in those with immunosuppressive diseases and conditions. Species within the genus include C. bantiana, C. boppii, and C carrionii.
