Abstract

A novel asexual ascomycetous yeast, (SG99-26 =KCTC 17041 =CBS 9067), was isolated from sweet potato () flowers in Korea and from the body surface of pollinating bumblebees in Germany. Comparative analysis of the D1/D2 domain of 26S rDNA of all available sequences for ascomycetous yeasts showed that the novel species was phylogenetically related to the genus , but the sequence similarity was low. Morphologically and physiologically, in many ways resembles , but can be distinguished from this species by its ability to assimilate lactic acid and its inability to produce pulcherrimin.
