Abstract

Twenty-one psychrophilic yeast isolates related to the family in the class were obtained from ice collected from cold environments worldwide. A new psychrophilic species from the recently described genus is proposed to accommodate 18 isolates from Patagonia (Argentina) and Antarctica (holotype CRUB 2086). In addition, a new psychrophilic species in the genus is described as sp. nov. (holotype CBS 8941), based on three isolates from glacial ice in the Russel glacier (Greenland ice sheet) and Antarctica. The strict psychrophilic profile is the salient feature of both novel species.
