Abstract

Eight strains with identical sequences of the D1/D2 domains of the large subunit rRNA genes were isolated from fallen fruits in two distant localities in Laos. These strains represent a novel dimorphic budding yeast species producing invasive pseudohyphae and a brown pigment when growing on media containing quinic acid as the sole carbon source or tryptophan as the sole nitrogen source. Phylogenetic analysis of the sequences of the D1/D2 domains, the internal transcribed spacer (ITS) regions and the 18S rRNA genes placed the novel species in the clade close to , and . The taxonomic name f.a., sp. nov., reflecting the geographical origin of the isolates, is proposed for the novel species. The type strain is 11-524 ( = CBS 12961 = NCAIM Y.02124 = CCY 64-4-1). The Mycobank number is MB 807383.
