Abstract

Four strains of two novel xylose-utilizing yeast species were obtained from samples collected in Thailand from decaying corncobs (strains KU-Xs13 and KU-Xs18), a decaying grass (KU-Xs20) and estuarine water from a mangrove forest (WB15). On the basis of morphological, biochemical, physiological and chemotaxonomic characteristics and sequence analysis of the D1/D2 domain of the large subunit rRNA gene, the four strains were found to represent two novel species of the genus in the clade. Three strains (KU-Xs13, KU-Xs18 and KU-Xs20) were assigned as a single novel species, which was named sp. nov. The type strain is KU-Xs13 (=CBS 11696=NBRC 106721=BCC 39601). Strain WB15 represented another novel species of the genus that was named sp. nov. The type strain is WB15 (=CBS 11024=NBRC 104881=BCC 29904).
