Fusariella sp.

Mitosporic fungus. Hyphomycetes.
Fusariella species comprise a very small proportion of the fungal biota. No information is available regarding health effects or toxicity. Allergenicity has not been studied. Rarely found but may be identified on surfaces by tape lifts, tease mounts from bulk samples, and in air by culturable (Andersen) samples. May be identified on spore trap samples if the presence of this genus has already been demonstrated (for example, on tape lifts). (Spores have somewhat distinctive morphology but may be confused with other genera.) Natural habitat includes leaves, dead stems, and litter (many plants).
