Abstract

Eight yeast strains were isolated from jujube fruit surfaces collected in Shanxi and Shandong Provinces, China. All eight strains produced needle-shaped ascospores under suitable conditions. Three separate groups, representing three novel species in the genus , were recognized by sequence comparisons of the 26S rDNA D1/D2 domain and internal transcribed spacer (ITS) region. The names sp. nov. (type strain XY103=AS 2.3110=CBS 10357), sp. nov. (type strain XY201=AS 2.3111=CBS 10358) and sp. nov. (type strain XY801=AS 2.3112=CBS 10359) are proposed for the three novel species. Phylogenetic analysis of the 26S rDNA D1/D2 domain sequence showed that these three novel species are clustered in a clade together with the previously described species , , and .
