Was an aflatoxin profile determined?

These images don’t show differences that distinguish A. flavus and A. parasiticus. An oil immersion magnification of the spores may be useful, but the aflatoxin profile is the best information to determine species.

Was this fungus isolated from a person with an Aspergillosis infection?

Only about 50% of A. flavus isolates have been found to make aflatoxin while nearly all A. parasiticus isolates have been found to make aflatoxins.
