Abstract

Six yeast strains isolated from olive oil sediments and spoiled olive oils originating from Slovenia and Portugal, respectively, proved to represent an undescribed yeast species based on DNA sequence comparisons. The analysis of gene sequences for internal transcribed spacer regions and the large subunit rRNA gene D1/D2 domain placed the novel species in the genus Kuraishia in a subclade containing Kuraishia capsulata, the type species of the genus. Although the novel species is well separated genetically from the recognized species of the genus, only a minor phenotypic difference differentiating it from Kuraishia capsulata and K. molischiana was observed. Relevant to its isolation source, no lipolytic activity was detected in the strains of the novel species. To accommodate the above-noted strains, Kuraishia mediterranea sp. nov. (holotype: ZIM 2473; isotype: CBS 15107; MycoBank no.: MB 822817) is proposed.
