Abstract

A novel ascomycetous yeast species in the genus was isolated from the fungus garden of an attine ant nest, (Hymenoptera: Formicidae), from Santa Fe province, Argentina. Pairwise sequence alignment of D1/D2 sequences in the GenBank (http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov) database revealed that the novel species is related most closely to and with 96% similarity to the first four. The species name sp. nov. is proposed to accommodate this novel strain, which differs from the above species in melibiose, 5-keto-D-gluconate, succinate, and DL-lactate assimilation among others. The type strain is JLU025 (=CBS 12756=CBMAI 1619).
