Abstract

Three mycocinogenic strains representing the genus were isolated on glucuronate agar from plants and turf collected in the Prioksko-terrasny biosphere reserve (Russia). These isolates fit the standard description of , but differ from its type strain in both their mycocin-sensitivity profiles and the killing patterns of their mycocins. Sequence analyses of the D1/D2 domain of the 26S rDNA and of the internal transcribed spacer region confirmed that these isolates represent two novel species, for which the names sp. nov. (type strain VKM Y-2906) and sp. nov. (type strain VKM Y-2905) are proposed. Morphological, physiological and biochemical characteristics, as well as mycocinotyping and molecular analysis, show a close affinity between these two novel anamorphic species and the teleomorphic species (Tremellales).
