Abstract

Two isolates of a novel yeast species were obtained from water tanks (phytotelmata) of the bromeliad collected in a tableland (‘campo rupestre’) ecosystem in Brazil. The sequences of the D1/D2 domains of the large-subunit rRNA gene showed that this species is related to and others, from which it differs by 8–10 nucleotide substitutions. The novel species sp. nov. is proposed to accommodate these isolates. The type strain is UFMG-BRO-80 ( = CBS 12684  = CBMAI 1466).
