Abstract

Five strains (RV5, RV140, R31, RS17 and RS28) representing three novel anamorphic ascomycetous yeast species were isolated by membrane filtration from estuarine waters collected from a mangrove forest in Laem Son National Park, Ranong Province, Thailand, on different occasions. On the basis of morphological, biochemical, physiological and chemotaxonomic characteristics, sequence analysis of the D1/D2 domain of the large-subunit rRNA gene and the internal transcribed spacer region and phylogenetic analysis, three strains were found to represent two novel species. Two strains (RV5 and RV140) represented a single novel species, for which the name sp. nov. is proposed. The type strain is RV5 (=BCC 35154 =NBRC 105873 =CBS 11419). Strain R31 was assigned to a novel species that was named sp. nov. (type strain R31 =BCC 25965 =NBRC 103862 =CBS 10859). On the basis of morphological, biochemical, physiological and chemotaxonomic characteristics, sequence analysis of the D1/D2 domain of the large-subunit rRNA gene and phylogenetic analysis, strains RS17 and RS28 represented another novel species of , for which the name sp. nov. is proposed. The type strain is RS28 (=BCC 25964 =NBRC 103861 =CBS 10861).
