Dictyoarthrinopsis kelleyi spec. nov.,Microsporon boullardii spec. nov. andSporotrichum keratinolyticum spec. nov. are highly keratinolytic fungi, which were isolated from two soil samples (about 50 kg in total) collected in Conakry (Guinea, Africa).

These species grow readily on hairs on Sabouraud-cycloheximidagar. They grow on the depurated and autoclaved hairs in distilled water in vitro with production of numerous conidia.
