Abstract

Four strains of a novel yeast species were isolated from rotting-wood samples in an Atlantic rainforest site in the state of Minas Gerais, Brazil. These yeasts were obtained from enrichments using yeast nitrogen base (YNB)--xylose or YNB-xylan media. The novel yeast species produces bacilliform ascospores typical of the genus , and its closest described relative in terms of sequence similarity is (iter. nom. ) . The yeast is able to grow in medium with xylan as sole carbon source and produces extracellular enzymes with xylanolytic activities. The novel species sp. nov. is proposed to accommodate these isolates. The type strain is UFMG-CA-32.1 ( = CBS 12683  = CBMAI 1467).
