The ascocarpic genus Eupenicillium Ludwig has been re-instated and reviewed taxonomically. It accommodates the perfect states of species characterized by pseudoparenchymatic or sclerotioid cleistothecia. The imperfect states belong to Penicillium Link ex Fries. Descriptions and synonomy of the genus and its type species E. crustaceum are presented. The generic name Eupenicillium has priority over the generic name Carpenteles Langeron. Penicillium kewense is reduced to the synonomy of E. crustaceum. The fungus misidentified by Shear as C. asperum is redescribed as E. shearii sp. nov. Species which had not previously been assigned to Eupenicillium are here so assigned.
