Comments: A black mold, occasional to common on enriched agar, easily separated from similarly colored molds by its unique conidia (spores). It has been claimed that Alfernaria more frequently
contaminates sorghum than rye although the authors can not corroborate this statement from their
experiences.

See Aspergillus and Cladosporium.
