Abstract

Six strains representing a novel yeast species belonging to the genus were isolated from two species of the subgroup ( group) in an Atlantic rainforest site in Rio de Janeiro State, Brazil. Four strains were isolated from crops and one from external parts of . The other strain was isolated from external parts of . Analysis of the D1/D2 large-subunit rDNA sequences indicated that the novel species is closely related to . The name sp. nov. is proposed to accommodate these strains. The type strain is UFMG-55 (=CBS 10007=NRRL Y-27828).
