Abstract

Abstract

Phylogenetic relationships of species assigned to the genus were estimated from the extents of divergence among partial sequences of rRNA. The data suggest that the aquatic species (, and ) and the terrestrial species (, and ) form two groups within the genus. and are well separated from other members of the genus, and may be sufficiently divergent that it could be placed in a new genus. Species of the genus are unique compared with other ascomycetous yeasts because they have a deletion in the large-subunit rRNA sequence that includes nucleotides 434 to 483.
