Abstract

Two xylose-utilizing yeast strains isolated from rotten wood collected in the rainforest in different mountains of Hainan province, southern China, were studied. Sequence analysis of the large subunit rDNA D1/D2 domain and internal transcribed spacer region revealed that the strains represent a novel anamorphic yeast species, for which the name sp. nov. is proposed; the type strain is HNX16-2 ( = CGMCC 2.3503 = CBS 11952). Phylogenetically, the novel species was closely related to a xylose-utilizing teleomorphic ascomycetous yeast species in the family , but differed from the latter by 3.0 % mismatches in the D1/D2 domain.
