Colonies are white, dry, and slightly farinose with radial fissures that frequently crack the agar. Colony size is 42-44 mm after 7 days incubation at 25°C.
After 72 hours incubation on cornmeal agar at 25° the yeast produces true hyphae which disarticulate into rectangular arthroconidia. Also present are fusiform giant cells .
This isolate is urease positive and grows at 42°C and on media containing cycloheximide. Type strains were been isolated from mushrooms and a case of cow mastitis. Clinical isolates have been isolated from the sputum of cystic fibrosis patients, from wound infections following a motor vehicle accident, from blood and organs of an ALL patient, and from a polycystic kidney, , .
