The species is primarily a soil fungus but has been found elsewhere such as in horse manure, plant remains, grains, vegetables and nuts. It is often seen on soft fruit, fruit juice and marmalade. Mucor is also the dominating mold found in floor dust in houses and is considered an indoor mold.

Anecdotal evidence suggests that M. racemosus is a common and important mould allergen that induces sensitisation and symptoms of asthma and allergic rhinitis in sensitised individuals. M. racemosus has also been associated with causation of extrinsic allergic alveolitis. Copyright Copyright © 2006 Phadia AB. Source: ImmunoCap, ImmunoCap
