Abstract

Several independent surveys of yeasts associated with different plant materials and soil led to the proposal of a novel yeast species belonging to the clade (, ). Analysis of the sequences of the D1/D2 domains and internal transcribed spacer region of the large subunit of the rRNA gene suggested affinity to a phylogenetic lineage that includes , and . Thirty-two isolates were obtained from different sources, including bromeliads, nectar of (Heliconiaceae), flowers of (Myrtaceae), roots and leaves of sugar cane ( spp.) in Brazil, leaves of , and in Thailand, soil samples in Taiwan, and prairie soil in the USA. Sequence analysis of the D1/D2 domains of the large subunit of the rRNA gene showed that the novel species differs from and by 36 and 46 nt substitutions, respectively. A novel species is suggested to accommodate these isolates, for which the name sp. nov. is proposed. The type strain is BI118 ( = CBS 11142 = ATCC MYA-4530).
