Verticillium species are common and are most closely related to Acremonium and Tritirachium. Former names include Acrostalagmus and Diheterospora. Verticillium is a major plant pathogen and is also parasitic on other fungi and insects. It is normally considered to be nonpathogenic in humans. A few cases of keratitis have been reported but remain questionable.
