Here, I wish to comment that the taxonomy x of dermatophytes has recently been revolutionized and a new taxonomy was internationally established [1]. Indeed, to update the mycologic data in all aspects of dermatophytosis the new taxa should be considered. Our recent sequencebased investigations in Iran [2,3] and some unpublished data obviously indicate that currently most of the strains morphologically identified as T. verrucosum are, in fact, T. verrucosum var. autotrophicum (Figure 1) which recently regarded to be conspecific with T. interdigitale [1]. Additionally, almost all entities phenotypically quoted as T. mentagrophytes are actually the old taxa of T. mentagrophytes var. mentagrophytes or var. granulosum which currently synonymized with T. interdigitale species [1,4].
