 Note: Oidiodendron setiferum is characteristic with solitary, erect, irregular or penicillate conidiophore, and arthrosporic conidiogenesis, which can be distinguished with the allied genera. Furthermore, O. setiferum in having sterile, branched, acnthoid appendages can be readily separated from the rest 30 Oidiodenddion species.
