Four new species of Penicillium isolated from different substrata

  • C. Ramírez
  • A. T. Martínez


Four new species of Penicillium Link ex Fries are described and illustrated. Two of them have been recovered from the air of Madrid, one from sandy soil, and one from leaves of Zacintha verrucosa Gaertner. They clearly differ from all species of the genus described so far and are, therefore, described and proposed as new taxa: Penicillium cordubense sp. nov., Penicillium gaditanum sp. nov, Penicillium zacinthae sp. nov., and Penicillium hispalense sp. nov.
