Fusariella sp.: Comprise a very small proportion of the fungal biota. No information regarding health effects, toxicity or allergenicity is available. Rarely found but may be identified on surfaces by tape lifts, tease mounts from bulk samples and in air by culturable samples. May be identified on spore trap samples if the presence of this genus has already been demonstrated (for example, on tape lifts). Spores have somewhat distinctive morphology but may be confused with other genera. Natural habitat includes leaves, dead stems, and litter (many plants).

Fusarium sp.: Contaminant. Opportunistic pathogen. Found in soil and fruit. Associated with multitude of infections in burn patients and eye infections.
