Abstract

A novel species, sp. nov., belonging to the section group is described. This species was isolated in Denmark from treated hardwood. Its taxonomic status was determined using a polyphasic taxonomic approach including phenotypic (morphology and extrolite profiles) and molecular (β-tubulin, internal transcribed spacer and calmodulin gene sequences, and universally primed PCR fingerprinting) analysis. Phenotypic and molecular data enabled this novel species to be clearly distinguished from other black aspergilli. is a uniseriate species that is morphologically similar to and but has a totally different extrolite profile compared to any known species. The type strain of sp. nov. is CBS 127449 ( = IBT 28509).
