Abstract

Five yeast strains isolated from plant leaves collected in south-east Tibet formed cream to brownish colonies and produced asymmetrical ballistoconidia and CoQ-9 as the major ubiquinone. Sequence analysis of the 26S rRNA D1/D2 domain and the internal transcribed spacer region indicated that these strains represented two novel species of the genus . The names sp. nov. (type strain XZ 4C5 = CGMCC 2.02635 = CBS 10710) and sp. nov. (type strain XZ 33D1 = CGMCC 2.02670 = CBS 10713) are proposed for the two novel species, which are phylogenetically closely related to , and the type species of the genus, .
