Abstract

During studies on the yeast communities associated with rotting wood in the Xishuangbanna Tropical Rainforest in PR China, four novel yeast strains were found. Phylogenetic analysis based on the concatenated sequences of the D1/D2 domains of the large subunit rRNA gene and the ITS regions showed that these strains represented two novel species in the / clade. The novel species, represented by strains NYNU 17948 and NYNU 17981, formed a clade with and , with 1–1.8% sequence divergence in the D1/D2 domains and 8.9–10% sequence divergence in the ITS regions. The other novel species, represented by NYNU 17105 and NYNU 17763, is most closely related to with 0.7 % sequence divergence in the D1/D2 domains and 6.9 % sequence divergence in the ITS regions. The two novel species could be distinguished from their closest described species in terms of physiological traits. The two novel species are described as sp. nov. (holotype NYNU 17948) and sp. nov. (holotype NYNU 17763).
