Abstract

During a survey of yeasts associated with insects in Central China's natural ecosystems, 116 yeast strains were isolated from the gut of adult insects in two families and from one beetle larva. Among the yeasts isolated in this study, 102 strains were identified as 20 known species in the class . The remaining 14 strains were identified as representing five novel species in the clade based on the combined sequences of the D1/D2 domains of the LSU rRNA gene and the internal transcribed spacer (ITS) regions, as well as other taxonomic characteristics. sp. nov. (type strain CBS 14171=CICC 33087=NYNU 15764T) formed a clade with and . The other four novel species, namely sp. nov. (type strain CBS 14175=CICC 33091=NYNU 15857), sp. nov. (type strain CBS 13923=CICC 33056=NYNU 1488), sp. nov. (type strain CBS 13928=CICC 33058=NYNU 14959) and sp. nov. (type strain CBS 14180=CICC 33084=NYNU 1582), showed close relationships to the species near , , and . Descriptions of these novel yeast species are provided as well as discussions of their ecology in relation to their insect hosts.
