Abstract

Four strains of a novel heterothallic yeast species were isolated from rotten wood samples collected at different locations in Hungary. Analysis of sequences of the D1/D2 domain of the large subunit rRNA gene placed the novel species in the genus . The novel species can be distinguished from , the single species of the genus, and from , the only recognized anamorphic species of the clade, on the basis of standard phenotypic characteristics. The relatedness among the four strains of the novel species and two closely related strains representing undescribed yeast species is discussed. The name sp. nov. is proposed to accommodate the four novel strains. The type and isotype strains of sp. nov. are NCAIM Y.01992 ( = CBS 12585 = NRRL Y-48818) and NCAIM Y.01936 ( = CBS 12586 = NRRL Y-48819), respectively. Two additional strains are NCAIM Y.01991 and NCAIM Y.01993.
