The opportunistic hyaline or lightly colored moulds constitute a phylogenetically diverse group of common to rare anamorphic and teleomorphic fungi that typically occur as saprobes in soil, in air, or on plant litter or as facultative plant pathogens. Some may be recovered from specimens without having any clinical significance. While several of the genera treated in this chapter include species having either lightly colored or dark (melanized) conidia, the emphasis is on those fungi that grow in tissue in the form of hyaline or lightly colored, septate hyphal elements. The term fusariosis is used to define infections caused by species of , but the practice of coining disease names based on the genus of fungus involved is disadvantageous for infections caused by uncommon or rare fungal pathogens. In the chapter, the name of the teleomorph is used for species that are identified mainly by their sexual structures. Most of the pathogenic moulds considered in the chapter are classified in the form-class Hyphomycetes (genera which bear their conidia free). The conidiogenous cell produces a single conidium or multiple conidia. The number of hyaline fungal species that have been reported to cause opportunistic infection in humans and animals is increasing. The chapter also describes the salient colonial and microscopic features of the medically important species in the genus and other selected currently recognized hyaline opportunists.
