Remarks (internal):This species is a common, cosmopolitan, saprobic hyphomycete often isolated from soil, plant debris, food, tissue and occasionally man and animal, which is easily recognisable by having long conidiophores, up to 300 µm, 3 5 µm wide, ramo-conidia up to 33 µm long and 3 5 µm wide, and, above all, globose to subglobose conidia, 3 5 µm diam., medium to dark olivaceous-brown, verruculose.
The only record of this species in connection with a fungal substrate was published by HAWKSWORTH (1979) who reduced Torula lichenopsis Höhn., described from a crustose lichen, to synonymy with C. sphaerospermum.
