Abstract

Three novel species are described as sp. nov. (type strain VKM Y-2962 =CBS 10977), sp. nov. (type strain VKM Y-2971 =CBS 11420) and sp. nov. (type strain VKM Y-2964 =CBS 10976) based on the study of eight isolates from needle litter. The new species, phylogenetically located within the Microbotryomycetes, are related to glucuronate-assimilating species of the genus . Sequencing of the D1/D2 domains of the LSU rDNA gene and the internal transcribed spacer (ITS) region, as well as physiological characterization, revealed their distinct taxonomic positions.

Phylogenetic tree based on sequence analysis of the D1/D2 domains of the LSU rDNA gene (maximum-likelihood, heuristic search, stepwise addition). Bootstrap values calculated were based on 1000 replicates and reported on the branches when greater than 50%. Sequences determined by the authors are in boldface. Bar, 0.01 substitutions per site.
