Deoxyribonucleic acid relatedness among the type strains of all taxa and known anamorphs assigned to the yeast genus was assessed by the optical reassociation technique. Three groups of species related at the 95% level or higher were found: (i) , and the anamorph ; (ii) with , and the anamorphs , and ; (iii) with and the anamorph . The remaining species, including the recently described and , are not related to each other or to the members of the above three groups. The nomen nudum is not conspecific with any of the species of the genus. The species assignment obtained by nuclear deoxyribonucleic acid reassociation does not entirely conform with the previously proposed reorganization of the genus (J.-P. van der Walt and E. Johannsen, p. 224–251, N. J. W. Kreger-van Rij, ed., . A Taxonomic Study, 1984).
