Abstract

Three heterothallic, haplontic yeast species, , and , are described from isolates associated with endemic nitidulid beetles living on various endemic plants on three Hawaiian islands. As morphospecies, they are similar to , but based on mating compatibility and ascospore formation, they can be assigned clearly to distinct biological species. Analysis of ITS/5·8S and D1/D2 large subunit rDNA sequences shows that, with and two other isolates, these species form a distinct subclade within the large-spored species, indicating that they are Hawaiian endemics. Type cultures are: , UWOPS 04-207.1=CBS 10056=NRRL Y-27834 (type, h) and UWOPS 04-204.1=CBS 10055=NRRL Y-27833 (allotype, h); , UWOPS 04-112.5=CBS 10058=NRRL Y-27836 (type, h) and UWOPS 04-109.1=CBS 10057=NRRL Y-27835 (allotype, h); and , UWOPS 04-190.1=CBS 10060=NRRL Y-27838 (type, h) and UWOPS 04-110.4=CBS 10059=NRRL Y-27837 (allotype, h).
