Assessment Notes

Taxonomic notes

Talaromyces allahabadensis is characterised by colonies with bright yellow mycelia and velvety texture on most media. The species grows well at 37 °C. Talaromyces allahabadensis has ellipsoidal to fusiform conidia. Based on the multigene phylogeny, T. allahabadensis is closely related to T. radicus. Talaromyces allahabadensis is distinguished from T. radicus by acid production on CREA, and denser sporulation on most media. Also, T. allahabadensis cannot grow at 40 °C.
