Abstract

Twenty-four yeast strains were isolated from ephemeral flowers of spp. and sp. and their associated insects in the Galápagos Archipelago, Ecuador, and from spp. and associated insects in the Cameron Highlands, Malaysia. Sequences of the D1/D2 domains of the large subunit rRNA gene indicated that these strains belong to a novel yeast species of the clade, although the formation of ascospores was not observed. The closest relative is . The human-mediated dispersion of this species by transpacific contacts in ancient times is suggested. The name f.a., sp. nov. is proposed to accommodate these isolates. The type strain is CLQCA-24i-070 ( = CBS 12823 = NCYC 3852); MycoBank number MB 803609.
