Penicillium claviforme

A slow-growing fungus that produces a gray-green colony with an uncolored or brown reverse, within fourteen days, when incubated at 25oC (77oF). It is isolated worldwide, but infrequently from soil, plants, salt-marshes, sand, and from the dung of birds, kangaroos, and opossums. There have not been any reports of human infections.
