Pleosporales is the largest order in the class Dothideomycetes, comprising of more than 4700 species. Members of this order occur in various habitats as endophytes, epiphytes or parasites of living leaves or stems, hyperparasites on fungi or insects, lichenicolous, or are saprobes of dead plant stems, leaves or bark in terrestrial or aquatic environments, or occur on animal dung (1). A dematiaceous fungus isolated from human nasopharyngeal aspirate was unidentifiable based on the morphological characteristics. It was only identified to order level as Pleosporales by molecular approaches.


On Sabouraud Dextrose Agar, this isolate appeared as brown surface with white cottony aerial mycelia. Microscopic images showed the septated hyphae falling apart into rectangular arthroconidia.
