Remarks (internal):The conidiophores of C. rectoides are very characteristic and reminiscent of C. rectangulare, a species described on Epidendrum from North America, which differs, however, in lacking ramoconidia and in having wider conidia (2-5(-6) µm wide) with secondary ramoconidia being mostly aseptate and narrower conidiogenous loci and hila, 0.5-1.5 µm diam (Schubert & Braun 2004). Cladosporium tenuissimum is morphologically also somewhat similar but different in that conidiophores are usually longer, intercalary conidia narrower and conidiogenous loci and hila somewhat narrower. Phylogenetically both species cluster quite distant from each other (see Fig. 1, part b vs. c; distance analyses in TreeBASE).

MycoBank MB517088. Figs. 62-63
Mycelium sparingly developed to more abundantly superficial, hyphae unbranched or sparingly branched, 1-4.5 µm wide, sometimes up to 6 µm wide, septate, not constricted at septa, pale olivaceous or pale olivaceous-brown, smooth to minutely verruculose or verruculose, sometimes verrucose, walls unthickened, sometimes forming ropes. Conidiophores solitary, macronematous, occasionally micronematous, arising terminally and laterally from hyphae, erect, straight to slightly flexuous, narrowly cylindrical-oblong, once or twice slightly to often distinctly geniculate-sinuous or slightly nodulose but often neither geniculate nor nodulose, with few apical loci, unbranched or branched, branches sometimes quite long, up to 80 µm, conidiophores 19-210 x (2-)2.5-4 µm, pluriseptate, not constricted at septa, sometimes growth proceeding at an angle of 45-90°, geniculations mostly intercalary, quite apart of the apex, pale to pale medium olivaceous-brown, smooth, walls slightly thick-walled, about 0.5 µm wide. Conidiogenous cells integrated, terminal and intercalary, distinctly sympodially proliferating, cylindrical-oblong, sometimes geniculate or right-angled, 12-47 µm long, sometimes few additional loci at a lower level, often arranged like a garland round about the stalk, in intercalary cells loci often situated on small lateral shoulders, conspicuous, subdenticulate, 1-2 µm diam, somewhat thickened and darkened-refractive. Ramoconidia cylindrical-oblong, 16-56 x 3-4 µm, 0-1-septate, commonly Substrate and distribution: On different plants; Asia (South Korea).
