Abstract

In the present work, we investigated the phylogenetic position and phenotypic characteristics of eight yeast isolates collected from migratory birds on the island of Ustica, Italy. A phylogenetic analysis based on the D1/D2 region of the large-subunit rRNA gene showed that all isolates clustered as a single separate lineage within the clade. They exhibited distinct morphological and physiological characteristics and were clearly separated from their closest relatives, , and , in searches. On the basis of the isolation source, physiological features and molecular strain typing carried out with randomly amplified polymorphic DNA (RAPD)-PCR and minisatellite-primed (MSP)-PCR analysis, the isolates were identified as strains of the same species. The name f.a., sp. nov. is proposed to accommodate these novel strains; the type strain is U88A2 ( = PYCC 6345 = CBS 12888). The MycoBank number is MB 804762.
