Main Article Content
Penicillium paradoxum has an enigmatic Aspergillus-like anamorphic state; earlier named as Aspergillus paradoxus with a teleomorph state Hemicarpenteles paradoxus.Â The present paper describes the rediscovery of this species from India after five decades and includes a phylogenetic study of this strain.Â This is the first record of this strain from peninsular India including the Western Ghats.Â
