Beltrania sp.

Mitosporic fungus. Hyphomycetes.
Beltrania species comprise a very small proportion of the fungal biota. No information is available regarding health effects, or toxicity. Allergenicity has not been studied. May be identified in air by spore trap samples. (Spores have distinctive morphology.) Beltrania needs specialized media for sporulation in the laboratory. Natural habitat includes dead leaves and plant litter of semi-tropical and tropical plants.
