Abstract

Among yeasts isolated from plant leaves collected in different regions of China that form whitish or yellowish colonies and symmetrical ballistoconidia, four strains were shown to represent three novel species by conventional and molecular taxonomic characterization. The novel species are described as sp. nov. (type strain CB 169=AS 2.2308=CBS 9744), sp. nov. (type strain HX 19.3=AS 2.2466=CBS 9747) and sp. nov. (type strain HX 15.5=AS 2.2435=CBS 9746). These three species, and another eight previously described species represented by , formed a strongly supported distinct clade among the hymenomycetous yeasts in each of the phylogenetic trees drawn from the 26S rDNA D1/D2 domain and the internal transcribed spacer region sequences.
