Abstract

Thirteen strains of yeasts were isolated from ambrosia beetle galleries at several sites in Japan. Based on the morphological and biochemical characteristics and phylogenetic analysis of the D1/D2 domain of the large subunit (LSU) rRNA gene of the yeasts, 10 strains were shown to represent a novel species of the genus , described as sp. nov. (type strain NBRC 11029 = CBS 12186), and were closely related to . The three other strains represented a novel species of the genus , described as sp. nov. (type strain NBRC 11048 = CBS 12187), and were closely related to . It is suggested that these species are associated with ambrosia beetles and we consider ambrosia beetle galleries as good sources of novel yeasts.
