Abstract

Six ballistoconidium-forming yeast strains that were isolated from plant leaves collected on Changbai Mountain, north-east China, were assigned to the genus Ingold emend. Nakase & Boekhout due to the formation of asymmetrical ballistoconidia, cream-coloured colonies and Q-9 as the major ubiquinone. Two separate groups, representing two novel species, were recognized among these yeasts by 26S rDNA D1/D2 domain, internal transcribed spacer (ITS) region and 18S rDNA sequence analyses. The names sp. nov. (type strain, CB 346=AS 2.2310=CBS 9497) and sp. nov. (type strain, CB 286=AS 2.2303=CBS 9498) are proposed for these two species.
