The presence of this mold is of particular concern because several toxic secondary metabolites (e.g., macrocyclic trichothecenes and saratoxins) have been isolated from Stachybotrys chartarum.
This "toxic black mold" produces a mycotoxin called trichothecene. Stachybotrys is rarely found outdoors.
Among these toxins are trichothecenes such as deoxynivalenol (DON), nivalenol (NIV), T-2 toxin, HT-2 toxin and diacetoxyscirpenol (DAS), zearalenone (ZEN), fumonisins and fusarins [4].
