A moderately rapid growing fungus that produces a intense blue-green to grayish blue colony within fourteen days, when incubated at 25oC (77oF). It is found worldwide and can be isolated from air, soil, desert soil, mangrove swamps, sewage, mines, seawater, bird feathers, cotton fabrics, leather, and foodstuffs. Rarely it is an opportunistic human pathogen causing nail infections (onychomycosis).
