Distinctive. Direct samples are preferred over culturable methods because Stachybotrys sometimes will not grow in culture.
The term black mold (also “toxic black mold”) is not scientific but is widely used by the media to usually reference Stachybotrys molds.
Often found growing in soil, dead herbaceous stems, wood, grasses, sugar beet root, groundnuts and oats.
Grows well on general cellulose surfaces but spores may take special nutrients to develop or may be completely absent.
Rare cases reported of phaeohyphomycotic sinusitis.
Grows indoors on cellulose containing materials such as jute, old sacking, wicker, straw baskets, wood, and paper.
