Spegazzinia is a genus of mitosporic Ascomycota in the Apiosporaceae family. The widely distributed genus contains seven species. This genus is somewhat related to other lobed or ornamented genera such as Candelabrum. No information is available regarding health effects or toxicity. Allergenicity has not been studied. Spegazzinia is usually identified on spore trap samples where it is seen every few weeks. It may also be found in air by culturable (Andersen) samples if a long enough incubation period is provided so that sporulation occurs. Laboratories have never found this organism growing on indoor environmental surfaces. Natural habitat includes soil and many kinds of trees and plants.

<i>Stilbella</i> Genus of fungi

Stilbella is a genus of fungi in the family Bionectriaceae. A 1985 monograph includes 19 species. More recent estimates place about 60 species in the genus. The type species Stilbella fimetaria(Pers.) Lindau 1905 has a cosmopolitan distribution and grows on herbivore dung. It has pink or orange slimy conidia on white synnemata with phialidic conidiogenous cells. Several species have since been reclassified in other genera based on DNA phylogenies or the discovery of sexual states, such as Atractium, Stilbocrea, and Trichoderma.
