Abstract

A total of 21 yeast isolates were recovered as part of a research project on biodiversity of yeasts in traditional dairy products in Alborz province, Iran. Standard protocols were used to carry out phenotypic, biochemical, physiological characterization and the phylogenetic analysis of combined the D1/D2 domain of the large ribosomal subunit (26S or LSU) and ITS region sequences. Five strains represented a potential new ascomycetous yeast species. Ascospore formation was not observed in these strains, and they did not ferment the examined carbon sources. Phylogenetic analysis placed these isolates in a well-supported sub-clade in the genus . Here, we describe this novel yeast as sp. nov.
