Unknown 53 = Chrysosporium tropicum
|A veterinarian submitted the culture shown below which was isolated from a skin lesion from a pet Australian Eastern Water Dragon Lizard (Physignathus lesueurii).|
Colonies are moderately fast growing, flat, white to tan to beige in colour, often with a powdery or granular surface texture. Reverse pigment absent or pale brownish-yellow with age. RG-2 organism.
Hyaline, one-celled (ameroconidia) are produced directly on vegetative hyphae by non-specialized conidiogenous cells. Conidia are typically pyriform to clavate with truncate bases (6 to 7 by 3.5 to 4 um) and are formed either intercalary (arthroconidia), laterally (often on pedicels) or terminally. No macroconidia or hyphal spirals are seen.
