Abstract

Seven strains of a heterothallic haploid yeast species were isolated from flowers of (hedge bindweed, Convolvulaceae) and associated sap beetles of the genus Conjugation was observed between some of the isolates and the type strain of , resulting in evanescent asci with one ascospore with a convoluted surface. The sequences of the D1/D2 variable domain of the large subunit of the rDNAs of three strains differed by only one or two bases from that of the type strain. The new genus , with the single species is proposed to accommodate the teleomorph of . The designated isotype is strain UWO(PS)97–118(h; CBS 8451).
