Scopulariopsis

Scopulariopsis

(skō'pyū-lar'ē-op'sis),
A genus of filamentous fungi rarely pathogenic for humans; several species have been implicated in onychomycosis, ulcerating granuloma, and other "mycotic" entities. Penicillium-like, it is common in nature and generally a contaminant in laboratory cultures of human tissues.
[Mod. L. scopula, a small broom, + G. opsis, appearance]

Scopulariopsis

Four species of fungi: Aspergillus, Penicillium, Rhizopus and Scopulariopsis were isolated and tested for hexavalent chromium tolerance.
Independent qPCR analyses were performed using primers and probes validated specifically for the 23 species/species groups of interest: Acremonium strictum, Alternaria alternata, Aspergillus flavus/oryzae, Aspergillus fumigatus, Aspergillus niger, Aspergillus ochraceus, Aspergillus sydowii, Aspergillus ustus, Aspergillus versicolor, Eurotium (Aspergillus) amstelodami, Chaetomium globosum, Cladosporium cladosporioides, Memnoniella echinata, Paecilomyces variotii, Penicillium aurantiogriseum, Penicillium brevicompactum, Penicillium chrysogenum, Penicillium purpurogenum, Penicillium variabile, Scopulariopsis brevicaulis/fusca, Stachybotrys chartarum, Trichoderma viride/koningii, and Ulocladium botrytis.
The shackling area had a similar predominance, although Scopulariopsis was outnumbered by Penicillium.
Trichoderma, Paecilomyces, Scopulariopsis, and Cephalosporium were also present in addition to small numbers of Phycomycetes, especially Pythium sp.
