Aspergillus flavipes is a type of mold that is found both in indoor and outdoor environments. It has been isolated predominantly from tropical and subtropical soils as well as from decaying vegetation, but has also been found in deteriorated cotton fabric. This mold is characterized by its yellowish or buff of brownish color, and grows rather slowly compared to other molds.
As with most aspergillus molds, Aspergillus flavipes is allergenic in nature. There has been no reported cases of severe toxic or invasive diseases that are associated with this type of mold. However, this species was implicated in a case of a cutaneous aspergillosis in a child with a compromised immune system as well as in a case of osteomyelitis.
