Abstract

Soil, snow and organic material, collected in November 1997 from the Vestvold Hills, Davis Base, Antarctica, were screened for yeasts. Two isolates, which were shown to be indistinguishable by rDNA sequencing and protein analysis by SDS-PAGE, are described in this communication as a novel species, sp. nov. (type culture, CBS 9496=NRRL Y-27556). Sequence analyses of the 26S rDNA D1/D2 region placed in the hymenomycetous yeasts in a cluster with and . This species has been allocated to the genus on the basis of physiological and morphological characteristics.
