Abstract
Section Flavi is one of the most significant Sections in the genus Aspergillus. Taxonomy of this section currently depends on multivariate approaches, entailing phenotypic and molecular traits. This work aimed to identify isolates from section Flavi by combining various classic phenotypic and genotypic methods as well as the novel approach based on spectral analysis by MALDI-TOF ICMS, and to evaluate the discriminatory power of the various approaches in species identification. Methods and Results Aspergillus section Flavi isolates obtained from Portuguese almonds were characterised in terms of macro- and micromorphology, mycotoxin pattern, calmodulin gene sequen...
