Can cause a respiratory infection characterized by a solid intracaitary fungal ball (26).
It can be confused with Aspergillus spp. Five to 18 merospores are enclosed in the tube shaped merosporangia at the terminal end of the sporangiophore (the sphere shape at the end). Compare this to Aspergillus spp. where the condia are produced at the ends of bowling ball shaped phialides.
