A. irregularis is characterized by irregular, lenticular, globose, obovoid, dictyoseptate conidia with 1-3 cellular protuberances, while C. tropicale is distinguished by its verrucose to tuberculate, brown conidiophores and fusiform, 3-septate, brown, smooth-walled conidia. A key to accepted Cacumisporium species is provided.
