Cladosporium sphaerospermum has a worldwide distribution. It is a leaf mould (phylloplane) commonly isolated from air, soil, foodstuffs, paint and textiles. It is also very common on wet building material such as gypsum board, acrylic and soil painted walls, painted wood, and wallpaper; carpet and mattress dust; HVAC fans, and wet insulation in mechanical cooling units.
Cladosporium sphaerospermum is allergenic, i.e., its spores can elicit allergic reactions to susceptible individuals. In the medical literature, Cladosporium sphaerospermum has been implicated as the cause of human corneal ulcer, skin lesions and infection of nails.
