Abstract

During a survey of the yeast community associated with the phylloplane of corn in Thailand, a basidiomycetous yeast strain belonging to the genus Papiliotrema was isolated. Analyses of the D1/D2 domains of the 26S (LSU) rRNA gene and complete ITS region supported the recognition of a novel species, for which the name Papiliotrema plantarum sp. nov. is proposed (type strain DMKU-CP801=CBS 15220=PYCC 7257). Another strain of P. plantarum sp. nov., isolated in French Guiana, was found to be sexually compatible with the Thai isolate and mycelium with clamp connections, basidia and basidiospores were observed in culture. The basidial morphology of P. plantarum combined features previously observed for Papiliotrema bandonii and Papiliotrema fuscus, which represent the only sexual species hitherto known in the genus, i.e. transversely septate basidia, with sexual structures of the Tremella type.
