Aspergillus carneus is not usually found indoors. It is quite widely distributed in tropical and subtropical soils. It is usually characterized by a pale tan to pink color.
Aspergillus carneus is found to be allergenic and has also been reported as an opportunistic pathogen. This means it can cause serious health effects in persons who have suppressed immune systems, especially if frequently exposed to this mold. This species was involved in a pulmonary infection in man, a disseminating apergillosis in a dog, and an experimental pathogenicity test done in mice proved that it can produce infectious disease in an organism. Despite its health hazards, however, healthy people can actually resist the infection that may possibly be induced by this mold.
