Penicillium corylophilum

A rapidly-growing fungus that produces a blue-green colony with a dark green reverse, within twelve days, when incubated at 25oC (77oF). It is commonly isolated worldwide but is found more frequently in warmer climates than from cool-temperate climates. It is isolated from soil, plants, foodstuffs, bees, and honeycombs. There have not been any reports of human infections.
