Abstract

In the present work, a novel ascomycete species, sp. nov., isolated from the fermentation process that produces cachaça, a Brazilian spirit, is proposed. Nucleotide sequence analysis of the 26S D1/D2 rDNA locus showed that sp. nov. was genetically related to and , although some physiological traits showed remarkable differences. Analysis of the D1/D2 large-subunit rDNA molecular marker showed a clear distinction among all three species, confirming that sp. nov. belongs to a separate taxonomic species in the clade. The type strain of sp. nov. is URM 5925 ( = CLIB 1160  = CBS 11717).
