Abstract

Two new and phylogenetically closely related species in section are described and illustrated. Homothallic sp. nov. was isolated from New Jersey soil (USA) and is represented by the ex-type isolate NRRL 179 ( = CCF 4266 = Thom 4138.HS2 = IBT 31900). sp. nov. was isolated from water with high boracic acid anions content in Dukovany nuclear power station (Czech Republic). The sexual stage of this species is unknown, but the MAT1-1 locus was successfully amplified suggesting that the species is probably heterothallic and teleomorphic but is represented by only the ex-type isolate CCM 8003 ( = CCF 4037 = NRRL 62486 = IBT 31279 = IFM 60873). Both species can be distinguished from all previously described species in section based on morphology, maximum growth temperature, sequence data from five unlinked loci and unique secondary metabolites profiles.
