Abstract

Eight strains representing three novel yeast species were isolated from insects distributed in three localities in Nanyang, Henan Province, Central China during 2014 and 2015. Sequence analysis of the D1/D2 domains of the large subunit (LSU) rRNA gene revealed that these species are members of the clade. These three novel species have a greater than 2.5 % difference from each other or their closest known species in the D1/D2 sequences. The three yeast species can also be separated from their closest known species in terms of physiological characteristics. Moreover, a sexual state could not be found in these three novel yeast species on various sporulation media. Therefore, the three novel species are described as f.a., sp. nov. (type strain, NYNU 15885=CICC 33092=CBS 14176), f.a., sp. nov. (type strain, NYNU 15896=CICC 33093=CBS 14177) and f.a., sp. nov. (type strain, NYNU 146103=CICC 33062=CBS 13929). The MycoBank numbers of f.a., sp. nov., f.a., sp. nov. and f.a., sp. nov. are MB 816962, MB 816963 and MB 816964, respectively.
