Abstract

A novel yeast species, sp. nov., is described from 12 strains isolated from flowers of and from beetles of the genus in the Cerrado ecosystem in the region of Jalapão, Tocantins State, Brazil. Analysis of the sequences of the rRNA gene cluster suggested that is closely related to , and an undescribed species represented by strain UWOPS 00-154.1. These species mate together but ascospores are very rarely formed, showing that they represent distinct biological species. is apparently endemic to the Cerrado ecosystem of the Jalapão area. The type strain of is UFMG 03-T67.1 (h) (=CBS 10409=NRRL Y-48067) and the designated allotype is UFMG 03-T68.1 (h) (=CBS 10410=NRRL Y-48068).
