During our previous study on the diversity of molds inhabiting wood, many Cladosporium isolates were collected and phylogenetically identified. Among them were isolates of two species previously unrecorded from Korea. Here, we confirm the isolates as Cladosporium perangustum and C. ramotenellum and provide descriptions and illustrations of cultural and microscopic characters on standard media. We draw attention to a broadening of the range of several characters for C. ramotenellum and to possible alternative phylogenetic relationships of C. perangustum when comparing our multi-gene analysis with previous analyses.
