Takashi Yaguchi , Ayako Sano , Kyoko Yarita , Moo Kyu Suh , Kazuko Nishimura & Shun-ichi Udagawa . A new species of Cephalotheca isolated from a Korean patient. Mycotaxon 96: 309 - 322. 2006.

ABSTRACT: The causative agent isolated from a Korean patient with subcutaneous fungal infection is described as Cephalotheca foveolata, a new species of Cephalotheca, Cephalothecaceae, Ascomycota. It is characterized by globose cleistothecia, covered with yellow to brown hairs, cephalothecoid peridium, prototunicate asci, broadly reniform and foveolate ascospores, and a Phialemonium-like anamorph. Based on the analysis of sequences of the D1/D2 region of 28S rDNA, the fungus is phylogenetically a member of Cephalotheca. This is a new record of the genus from a patient with a human mycosis.
