Talaromyces section Talaromyces  

Colony diam, 7 d (mm).

CYA 22-23; CYA 30 °C 25-26; CYA 37 °C 22-23; MEA 36-37; MEA 30 °C 44-45; OA 38-42; YES 28-29; CREA 7-8; CYAS No growth; DG18 10-11.

Colony characters.

CYA 25 °C, 7 d: Colonies moderately deep, plane; margins entire; mycelium white and peach (4); texture floccose; sporulation moderately dense; conidia en masse greyish yellow-green (68); soluble pigments absent; exudates absent; reverse buff (45). MEA 25 °C, 7 d: Colonies moderately deep, plane; margins entire; mycelium white; texture floccose; sporulation moderately dense; conidia en masse leek green (49) and greyish yellow-green (68); soluble pigments absent; exudates brown droplets; reverse saffron (10). YES 25 °C, 7 d: Colonies moderately deep, plane; margins entire; mycelium white and peach (4); texture floccose; sporulation moderately dense; conidia en masse greyish yellow-green (68); soluble pigments absent; exudates absent; reverse saffron (10). DG18 25 °C, 7 d: Colonies moderately deep, plane; margins entire; mycelium white and primrose (66); texture floccose; sporulation dense; conidia en masse honey (64); soluble pigments absent; exudates absent; reverse greyish yellow-green (68). OA 25 °C, 7 d: Colonies moderately deep, plane; margins entire; mycelium white and primrose (66); texture floccose; sporulation dense; conidia en masse yellow-green (71); soluble pigments absent; exudates clear droplets; reverse greyish yellow-green (68). CREA 25 °C, 7 d: Moderate growth, acid production absent.

Micromorphology.

Conidiophores biverticillate, stipes smooth, 150-250 × 3-4 μm, metulae 4-5, divergent, 10-12 × 3-3.5 μm; phialides 4-6, acerose to flask shaped, 8-10.5 × 3-3.5 μm; conidia strikingly roughened, globose, 3-4 μm. Ascomata not observed.

Notes.

Talaromyces aspriconidius   is characterized by its strikingly roughened, globose conidia. Talaromyces aculeatus   , T. apiculatus   , T. diversus   , T. solicola   and T. verruculosus   also produce this kind of conidia. However, T. aspriconidius   grows slower than T. aculeatus   , T. apiculatus   and T. verruculosus   , and faster than T. diversus   and T. solicola   on CYA and CYA at 30 °C ( Yilmaz et al. 2014).

Etymology.

Latin, aspriconidius   , refers to its strikingly roughened conidia.
