Abstract
Aspergillus is a large genus, with a complex taxonomy. The genus is easily identifiedd by its characteristic conidiophore, but species identification and differentiation is complex, mainly because it is traditionally based on a range of morphological features. Aspergillus subgenus Circumdati section Flavi, also refered to as the A.dflavus group, has attracted worldwide attention for its industrial use and toxigenic potential. Sectiond Flavi is divided in two groups of species. One includes the aflatoxigenic species A. flavus, A. parasiticus and A. nomius, which cause serious problems in agricultural commodities, and the other one includes the non-aflatoxigenic s...
