Abstract

Three strains (DMKU-RE28, DMKU-RE43 and DMKU-RE123) of a novel anamorphic yeast species were isolated from rice leaf tissue collected in Thailand. DNA sequence analysis demonstrated that the species forms a sister pair with CBS 10861 but differs by 24–30 substitutions in the LSU rRNA gene D1/D2 domains and 30–35 substitutions in the ITS region. A phylogenetic analysis based on both the small and the large rRNA gene subunits confirmed this connection and demonstrated the presence of a clade that also includes and . The clade is not closely affiliated to any known teleomorphic genus, and forms a well-separated lineage from currently recognized genera of the Saccharomycetales. Hence, the genus gen. nov. is proposed to accommodate members of the clade, including f.a. sp. nov. and the preceding seven species. The type strain is DMKU-RE43 ( = CBS 13388 = BCC 61183 = NBRC 109695).
