Rhinocladiella sp.: Found in the soil, herbaceous
substrates, and decaying wood. Mode of dissemination:
dry spore, wind. Occasionally found on a variety
of substrates. One species is called the cellar
fungus, most commonly found on brickwork and adjacent
timber in wine cellars. Very small, slow growing
colonies. May be over looked on crowded plates.
Rhizomucor: The Zygomycetous fungus is reported
to be allergenic. It may cause mucorosis in immune
compromised individuals. It occupies a biological
niche similar to Mucor sp. It is often linked
to occupational allergy. May cause mucorosis in
immune compromised individuals. The sites of infection
are the lung, nasal sinus, brain, eyes and skin.
Infection may have multiple sites.
Rhizopus sp.: Contaminant. Opportunistic pathogen.
Found in soil, decaying vegetation and animal
dung. Can cause Zygomycoses and lung infection.
Rhodotorula: A reddish yeast typically found
in moist environments such as carpeting, cooling
coils, and drain pans. In some countries it is
the most common yeast genus identified in indoor
air. This yeast has been reported to be allergenic.
Positive skin tests have been reported. It has
colonized terminally ill patients.
