Abstract

Six novel yeast species, f.a., sp. nov., f.a., sp. nov., f.a., f.a., sp. nov., sp. nov., f.a., sp. nov. and f.a, sp. nov. are proposed to accommodate 19 isolates recovered from ephemeral flowers or bees in Brazil, Costa Rica and Belize. Sequence analysis of the ITS-5.8S region (when available) and the D1/D2 domains of the large subunit of the rRNA gene showed that the six novel yeasts are phylogenetically related to several species of the clade. The type strains are f.a., sp. nov. UFMG-CM-Y595 (=CBS 14130; Mycobank number MB 822640), f.a., sp. nov. UFMG-CM-Y596 (=CBS CBS14131; MB 822641), f.a., sp. nov. UFMG-CM-Y603 (=CBS14104; MB 822642), f.a., sp. nov. UFMG-CM-Y286 (=CBS 13466; MB 822643), f.a., sp. nov. UWOPS 01–191.1 (=CBS 15148; MB 822645) and f.a., sp. nov. UWOPS 00–107.2 (=CBS 15147; MB 822646). In addition, 25 species currently assigned to the genus are reassigned formally to the genus
