Abstract

Yeast strains belonging to the basidiomycetous genus Cryptotrichosporon were isolated from forest soils in Serra da Arrábida Natural Park in Portugal. Similar to the already-known representatives of this genus, the new isolates formed pigmented colonies of a distinctive pale orange colour. Phylogenetic analyses employing concatenated sequences of the D1/D2 domains of the 26S (large subunit) rRNA gene and the internal transcribed spacer (ITS) region supported the recognition of three novel species: Cryptotrichosporon argae sp. nov. (type strain CM 19=CBS 14376=PYCC 7010=DSM 104550; MycoBank accession number MB 817168), Cryptotrichosporon brontae sp. nov. (type strain CM 1562=CBS 14303=PYCC 7011=DSM 104551; MycoBank accession number MB 817077) and Cryptotrichosporon steropae sp. nov. (type strain OR 395=CBS 14302=PYCC 7012=DSM 104552; MycoBank accession number MB 817078).
