Phialophora is a form genus of fungus with short conidiophores, sometimes reduced to phialides; their conidia are unicellular. They may be parasites (including on humans), or saprophytic (including on apples).

Phialophora Phialophora have these characteristic flaskshaped phialides

Genetic analysis of Phialophora shows that it is a paraphyletic grouping.

The conidia are produced from a flask shaped phialide. Mature, spherical, to oval conidia are extruded from phialides and usually accumulate around it.
