|Mitosporic fungus. Hyphomycetes.|
|Distribution||Where Found||Mode of Dissemination|
Approx. 5 species.
|Plant litter, soil, many types of plants and trees.||Dry spore.
|Allergen||Potential Opportunist or Pathogen||Potential Toxin Production|
|Not studied.||Not known.||Trichothecenes (trichodermol and trichodermin) and griseofulvins. Trichothecene toxicity is due to the ability to bind ribosomal protein. Griseofulvin has been made commercially available as an anti-dermatophyte drug.|
|Growth Indoors||Industrial Uses||Other Comments|
|Yes, on a variety of substrates.
|Not known.||Very closely related to Stachybotrys.
M. echinata produces acetic acid.
|Characteristics: Growth/Culture||Notes on Spore Trap Recognition||Notes on Tape Lift Recognition|
|Grows on general fungal media, forming dark gray to black colonies. In Memnoniella the spores do not slime down but are held in long chains.||Distinctive. Frequently found in conjunction with Stachybotrys species.||Distinctive, readily identifiable on tape lifts.|
