Growth in YM broth/(5%) malt extract:After 10 days
at 2022C, colonies are 65 mm in diameter, flat, white, dry and cottony.
Expanding hyphae are submerged and without dichotomous
branching. Main branches are 69 μm wide, with lateral branches
46 μm wide, which soon disarticulate into rectangular arthroconidia,
3.54.53615 μm (Fig. 31.6).
Formation of ascospores:Hyphae with localized, profuse septation
develop gametangia on opposite sides of the septa. Asci are subspherical,
710368 μm, and contain one ascospore. Ascospores are
broadly ellipsoidal, 56367 μm, pale golden-brown, finely warted,
with an irregular, locally inflated exosporium, and often with a hyaline
median furrow (Fig. 31.6). The species is homothallic.
Ascosporulation was observed on MEYA after 2 weeks at 22C.
Gene sequence accession numbers, type strain:D1/D2 LSU
rRNA5U40111, SSU rRNA5AB000646, ITS5AY788299.
Origin of the strains studied:CBS 179.60 (NRRL Y-17566, IFO
10823), from water-rotted brown Indian hemp (kenaf) (Hibiscus
cannabinus, Malvaceae), Indonesia, J.P. van der Walt; CBS 295.84, CBS
296.84, from fodder, H. Saëz; CBS 564.97 (Butler 474), CBS 565.97
(Butler 475), from soil, Costa Rica, E.E. Butler.
Type strain:CBS 179.60 
Ecology:Known isolates are associated with decaying plant material
and soil.
Clinical importance:Unknown, but the species is unable to grow
at 37C.
Systematics:Galactomyces reessii is similar to Gal. geotrichum but differs
by having smaller ascospores, and by the inability to ferment
glucose, assimilate D-mannitol or grow on media without vitamins.
The separate status of the species was confirmed by molecular data
(de Hoog and Smith 2004, Kurtzman and Robnett 1998, Smith et al.
1995c, Ueda-Nishimura and Mikata 2000).
