Abstract

Three strains of a new xylanase-producing yeast species were isolated from rotting wood samples collected in the Atlantic Rain Forest of Brazil. The sequences of the internal transcribed spacer region and D1/D2 domains of the large subunit of the rRNA gene showed that this novel yeast species belongs to the genus , and its closest relatives among recognized species are and . A novel species, named sp. nov., is proposed to accommodate these isolates. The type strain is UFMG-CM-Y274 ( = CBS 13490). The MycoBank number is MB 813053. In addition, is reassigned to the genus as a new combination.
