 MycoBank #:499315 
 Authors (abbreviated):House
 Page #:62
 Journal or book:House 1919, Bull. New York St. Mus. Nat. Hist. 219-220: 62 
 Year of effective publication:1919
 Name status:Illegitimate
 Remarks:Petrak appears to have errored. Although page 62 of vol 219/220 reads "Cladosporium brevipes, n.sp." this portion of vol 219/220 is actually a reprint of Peck's report of 1886(1887), reproduced in vol 219/220 for reasons stated on page 36. Homer D. House authored in 1921 "Notes on Fungi, IVÂ…from New York State Museum Bulletins 219, 220" but House's notes make no reference to C. brevipes or any other Cladosporium. It seems that Petrak's reference to C. brevipes House is an error. C. letiferum House was likely created via the same error. Both actually pertain to Peck's fungi of the same name
