Penicillium brevicompactum

A slow-growing fungus that produces a grayish-green colony with an uncolored or brownish reverse, within fourteen days, when incubated at 25oC (77oF). While it is a common fungus isolated worldwide, it is infrequently isolated from soil, plants, swamps, marshes, bird feathers, rabbit dung, fruits, and fruit juices. Rarely, it can be an opportunistic human pathogen.
