Abstract

Two ascomycetous yeast species, sp. nov. and sp. nov., were isolated from tropical flowers and their associated insects. was isolated from flower bracts of and (Heliconiaceae) collected from two Atlantic rain forest sites in Brazil. was isolated from flowers of sp. (Convolvulaceae) growing on the banks of the river Paraguai in the pantanal ecosystem in Brazil and from an adult of the stingless bee sp. and a flower of (Convolvulaceae) in Costa Rica. belongs to the Metschnikowiaceae clade and belongs to the clade. The type strain of is UFMG-JL13 (=CBS 10566=NRRL Y-48258) and the type strain of is UWO(PS) 00-226.2 (=CBS 10593=NRRL Y-48255).
