Abstract

Three novel mite-associated basidiomycetous species are described in two new anamorph genera as gen. nov., sp. nov. (type CBS 110052=NRRL Y-27483=AS 004), sp. nov. (type CBS 110053=NRRL Y-27482=AS 005) and gen. nov., sp. nov. (type CBS 110050=NRRL Y-27484=AS 001). Morphologically, these fungi are similar to the yeast-like fungi classified in the Ustilaginales, such as species. However, analysis of the D1/D2 domain of the LSU rDNA suggests that they belong to two different lineages within the Exobasidiomycetidae of the Ustilaginomycetes (Basidiomycota). Furthermore, these fungi may be of interest for the biocontrol of mites, as they reduced mite numbers by approximately 80 % after inoculation.
