Abstract

A novel species of the genus was isolated from sediment collected on the deep-sea floor of Suruga Bay, Japan. Nucleotide sequences of 18S rDNA, internal transcribed spacers, 5·8S rDNA and the D1/D2 region of 26S rDNA of strain SY-260 suggested affinities to a phylogenetic lineage that includes . Comparisons of the rDNA sequences of each region clarified that strain SY-260 is related distantly to and , but is distinct at the species level. As ballistoconidia and sexual reproduction were not observed in strain SY-260, this strain is described as sp. nov. (type strain, SY-260=JCM 11903=CBS 9426).
