Clinical isolates of that were investigated by isoenzyme and randomly amplified polymorphic DNA analyses represented two distinct species. The two species were distinguished on the basis of delayed fermentation of galactose. The larger group of isolates was closely related to the anamorph ATCC 6260 (T = type strain) and its teleomorph, ATCC 46036. The remaining group, whose members fermented galactose, was very similar to CBS 2022, which had for many years been placed in synonymy with . Three additional groups were represented by individual strains; these strains included var. ATCC 20216, which was found to represent . The type strain of is redefined.
