Abstract

A novel representative of the yeast genus has been recovered 11 times during 1971, 1972, and 1973 from soft-rot pockets in three species of cactus. Engelm., Engelm., and Engelm. The collections were made in the Sonoran desert of southern Arizona and of northern Mexico. The rot pockets constitute important breeding sites for spp., which presumably feed on the yeasts present. The new species was named after the genus of cactus with which it is associated.
