Found this growing on an agar plate that had seedlings of Arabidopsis Thaliana. Was left for days in a greenhouse. Isolated in a petri dish on agar.

The easiest way to distinguish Penicillium from Aspergillus is to grab a microscope and look at their conidiophores. They tend to be more elongate and brush-like in Penicillium,whereas they are more rounded in aspergillus (resembles an aspergillum, the shaker Catholic priests use to disperse holy water). Distinguishing between species of Penicillium is much tougher. P. Claviforme is easily recognizable with the naked eye though, because it has distinctive grayish heads (coremia) on reddish, matchstick-looking stalks.
within species and from Aspergillus?
