Twenty-eight yeast strains presumed to represent were analyzed by randomly amplified polymorphic DNA-PCR analysis. Four strains (HUT 7161, IFO 1138, IFO 1145, and IFO 1956) that were considerably different from the type strain were further investigated. Morphological and physiological characteristics revealed that strains HUT 7161 and IFO 1145 belong to the genus rather than the genus , and the former strain may represent Strains IFO 1138 and IFO 1956 were classified as either or by identification keys involving physiological tests. On the basis of analysis of the sequences of two rRNA internal spacer regions, strains IFO 1138 and IFO 1956 were closely related to and strains HUT 7161 and IFO 1145 were outside members of the genera , and
