Abstract

The novel yeast species is described based on eight isolates from decaying fruits of Cogn. (Melastomataceae) in an Atlantic rainforest site in Brazil, one from a Convolvulaceae flower in Costa Rica and one from a drosophilid in Hawai'i. The strains differed in their colony morphology, one being butyrous and smooth and the other being filamentous and rugose. Sequences of the D1/D2 domains of the large-subunit rRNA gene from both morphotypes were identical. belongs to the clade and is closely related to . The two species can be separated on the basis of growth at 37 °C and the assimilation of melezitose, negative in the novel species. The type culture of is strain UNESP 00-64R (=CBS 9735=NRRL Y-27757).
