Abstract

During the characterization of the mycobiota associated with shallow-water marine environments from Antarctic sea, a novel pink yeast species was isolated. Sequence analysis of the D1/D2 domain of the LSU rDNA gene and 5.8S-ITS regions revealed that the isolated yeast was closely related to CBS 320 and CBS 9124. On the basis of morphological, biochemical and physiological characterization and phylogenetic analyses, a novel basidiomycetous yeast species, sp. nov., is proposed. The type strain is Pi2 ( = CBS 12733  = CECT 13081) which was isolated from shallow-water marine sediment in Fildes Bay, King George Island, Antarctica.
