NotesSubbaromyces splendens was repeatedly found growing on trickling filter beds in New York. Hesseltine (1953) reported both the sexual and asexual morphs. The genus is characterised by ascomata with ostiolar necks and 1-septate ascospores surrounded by a sheath. The asexual morph has micronematous conidiophores, with non-apically branching structures and solitary, holoblastic, oblong-elliptical to obovate conidia.
