Abstract

Fifteen strains of the complex were reclassified based on sequence analyses of 18S rDNA, the D1/D2 region of the 26S rDNA and the internal transcribed spacer regions, as well as physiological and biochemical properties. The strains were divided into phylogenetic groups I and II. The type strain of (CBS 139=ATCC 18803 =JCM 9066 =MUCL 30398 =NRRL Y-2536) was in phylogenetic group I. Phylogenetic group II, which was phylogenetically distant from phylogenetic group I, clustered with and . In phylogenetic group I, the type strain of (CBS 318=ATCC 32063 =IFO 0372 =NRRL Y-1582) appeared to be a separate species from , and the designation comb. nov. is proposed for . (formerly , type strain CBS 942=ATCC 10668 =DBVPG 6007 =MUCL 30414) was treated as a synonym of ; however, this is a distinct species. The type strains of (CBS 973=ATCC 32064 =MUCL 30641 =NRRL Y-1503), (CBS 2409=ATCC 13546 =MUCL 30643 =NRRL Y-2005) and belonged to phylogenetic group II. Two new combinations, comb. nov. (type strain CBS 973=ATCC 32064 =MUCL 30641 =NRRL Y-1503) and comb. nov. (type strain CBS 2409=ATCC 13546 =MUCL 30643 =NRRL Y-2005), are proposed from this group.
