Abstract

Among ballistoconidium-forming yeast strains isolated from various plant leaves collected from subtropical forests in eastern and central China, four strains forming cream to yellowish coloured colonies were revealed to represent three novel species by conventional and molecular characterization. Phylogenetic analysis based on combined sequences of the internal transcribed spacer (ITS) and 26S rRNA gene D1/D2 domain showed that strains GT-753 and ZJJ-890 were conspecific and closely related to , and . Strain ZJJ-394 was basal to the branch formed by , and with strong bootstrap support. Strain GT-475 was closely related to . The strains differed significantly from their close relatives in D1/D2 and ITS sequences and in physiological criteria. Three novel species are proposed: sp. nov. (type strain ZJJ-890 = CGMCC 2.4407 = CBS 12233), sp. nov. (type strain GT-475 = CGMCC 2.4411 = CBS 12234) and sp. nov. (type strain ZJJ-394 = CGMCC 2.4409 = CBS 12259).
