Remarks (internal):This species is similar to Torula herbarum f. quaternella Sacc. in conidial morphology. However, the conidia of the latter have fewer (1-3, commonly 2) septa and are shorter (10-17 µm) (Ellis 1971) than those of the new taxon. In addition, the conidia of T. herbarum f. quaternella are almost smooth, but those of T. brunnea are echinulate or verrucose.
