Trichothecium

Genus of molds with the only known species Trichothecium roseum. It often occurs worldwide in soil and on dying plant material. In the interior Trichothecium roseum is often found as a spoil on flour products and other foods. The fast-growing mold shows a whitish color, which changes from orange to reddish in older colonies. In the vineyard thereby becomes the Traubenfäuleart Pink stain caused (see under green rot ). Through metabolism can mycotoxin (Poison) are formed, which is called after the fungus group of the Trichothecene. Their toxicity is low, but can lead to fermentation problems or Gärfehlern to lead.
