New species[edit]

A second species of Purpureocillium has been described - P. lavendulum. The reference is Perdomo, Cano, Gené, Garcia, Hernández and Guarro, 2013 "Polyphasic analysis of Purpureocillium lilacinum isolates from different origins and proposal of the new species Purpureocillium lavendulum" Mycologia 105 (1) pp. 151-161 doi:10.3852/11-190 It will probably require a re-write of the Purpureocillium page, but I'm not knowledgeable/experienced enough to do it Elspooky (talk) 20:19, 2 February 2013 (UTC)

Thanks for the heads up, I'll work on this soon. There's been so many taxonomic changes in just the past month (especially in the Agaricales, where I mostly hang out) it's hard to keep up! Sasata (talk) 20:56, 2 February 2013 (UTC)

Move to new species[edit]

"In 1974, Charles Thom transferred the species to Paecilomyces" sounds wrong, seeing as Charles Thom died in 1956. Something seems to be wrong here. Rzztmass (talk) 11:20, 16 October 2013 (UTC)
