Notes Subbaromyces splendens was repeatedly found growing on trickling filter beds in New York. Hesseltine (1953) reported both the sexual and asexual morphs.

The asexual morph has micronematous conidiophores, with nonapically branching structures and solitary, holoblastic, oblongelliptical to obovate conidia.
