Abstract

SUMMARY sp.nov. and sp.nov. are described and Latin diagnoses given. Both species form on V8 agar (Wickerham, 1951) club-shaped asci containing a single needle-shaped ascospore and are capable of parasitizing under experimental conditions. differs from by its capacity to ferment glucose and to assimilate galactose, -sorbose, -xylose, -glucosamine, adonitol, -sorbitol and pyruvate. In infected daphnias the asci and cells of both yeasts resemble Metschnikoff's drawings of . As cultures of do not exist and its physiological properties are unknown, the possible identity of either or with cannot be verified and (Metschnikoff 1884) Genkel 1913 is therefore considered a . Both yeasts were repeatedly isolated from marine substrata on and off the coast of La Jolla, California, U.S.A. Minimum numbers of viable organisms in positive samples varied for as follows: sea water, 2–58/100 ml.; fish gut contents (of and ), 25–5,730/ml.; surface of Giant Kelp , 520–39,200/g. was isolated only from sea water, 1–57/100 ml.
