In the course of a study of the mycoflora in the recently reclaimed polder Zuidelijk Flevoland (Netherlands) a hyphomycete was isolated characterized by sporogenous cells borne singly either directly on the vegetative hyphae or less often in groups of two or three on very short conidiophores with one-celled hyaline conidia bundled in heads. According to these characteristics it has to be classified within the genus Acremonium. Gams (1971) in his monograph of Cephalosporium-like hyphomycetes treated 82 species but as the fungus concerned could not be identified with any of these, it was considered as new.
