Genus of molds with over 50 species (species), which are also called black mold because of their color from brown to black-brown. These are the most common molds in the outside air, which make up to 90% of all airborne molds in summer. That is why they are usually at allergy tests used. Above all they can be found in swamps, in the forest and in gardens and like to grow on rotten plants and leaves in a damp environment. In the vineyard, the mold is for certain types of bunch rot responsible. The one found in damp wine cellars basement mold with the old (still frequently used) name Cladosporium cellare was also previously included in this genus. According to new knowledge, it belongs to a different genus and is now called Zasmidium cellare.
