Penicillium corylophilum

This species is widely distributed, but it is found more frequently in warm climates. Isolations have been successful from soil, textiles and various foods. This species is thought to be relatively xerophilic and is likely more common in low-humidity conditions, probably explaining their isolation from wood and paint. At this time, P. corylophilum does not appear to be a human pathogen.
