Talaromyces eburneus, previously unregarded as a heat resistant fungus, is redescribed on new isolate from a spoilage outbreak that involved a pasteurized pineapple juice in Japan. Based on examination of the new isolate, type studies, and the D1/D2 region of 28S rDNA sequence analysis, we conclude that Geosmithia argillacea is assigned to the teleomorphic species T. eburneus as an anamorph. Heat resistant fungus identification such as this finding is important in the study of food spoilage.
