Diagnostic Notes
Morphology

Conidiophores up to 500 µm long, 3–5 µm thick, usually unbranched, septate, pale brown, straight or flexuous, with terminal and intercalary swellings (6–8 µm wide) on which are conspicuous and thickened conidial scars. Conidia 5–30 × 3–6 µm, usually 0-septate (rarely 1-septate), subhyaline or pale olivaceous brown, smooth, ellipsoidal or subglobose; produced in branched chains and hence may have one or more slightly protruding scars at either end. First formed conidia are often 1-septate and longer than those formed later.

Cladosporium tenuissimum and C. cladosporioides are two quite common saprobic species isolated from numerous substrates. They are morphologically very similar and have, therefore, often been confused. However, they represent two morphologically, as well as phylogenetically allied but distinct species.
