[show abstract][hide abstract] ABSTRACT: Three anamorphic, ascomycetous yeast strains isolated from plant samples collected in Linzhi District, Tibet, China, were revealed as representing two novel species by 26S rRNA gene D1/D2 domain sequence and physiological property comparisons. The names Candida tibetensis sp. nov. and Candida linzhiensis sp. nov. are proposed for these novel species, with XZ 41-6T (=AS 2.3072T=CBS 10298T) and XZ 92-1T (=AS 2.3073T=CBS 10299T) as the respective type strains. D1/D2 sequence analysis showed that C. tibetensis and C. linzhiensis are closely related to Candida caryicola and Candida sequanensis, respectively.

[show abstract][hide abstract] ABSTRACT: The genetic diversity of the types or authentic strains of 20 facultative synonyms of Pichia membranifaciens (E.C. Hansen) E.C. Hansen was revealed on the basis of large-subunit (26S) rDNA D1/D2 domain and internal transcribed spacer region sequencing and electrophoretic karyotyping. At least five separate species were recognized among the strains studied. Fourteen strains were confirmed to belong to P. membranifaciens. Strain CBS 241, an authentic strain of Zygosaccharomyces chevalieri Guilliermond var. fermentati Saito, should be assigned to Pichia manshurica Santa María. Strain CBS 243, an authentic strain of Zygopichia chiantigiana Castelli, is conspecific with CBS 2287, the type strain of Pichia fluxuum (Phaff & Knapp) Kreger-van Rij. Strain CBS 1367, the type of Zygosaccharomyces bisporus Anderson, belongs to Pichia kluyveri Bedford var. kluyveri. Strain CBS 989, the type of Cryptococcus californicus Anderson & Skinner, represents a distinct species, for which a new combination, Candida californica comb. nov., is proposed. The taxonomic status of strains CBS 189, the type of Pichia calliphorae Klöcker, and CBS 214, the type of Pichia derossii Castelli, remain to be studied further. Their D1/D2 sequences and chromosomal DNA banding patterns were similar to those of P. membranifaciens, but their internal transcribed spacer sequences differed significantly.

[show abstract][hide abstract] ABSTRACT: The unidentified strains AS 2.0706(T), preserved in the China General Microbiological Culture Collection Center (CGMCC), Academia Sinica, Beijing, China, and CBS 6904(T), preserved in the Centraalbureau voor Schimmelcultures (CBS), Utrecht, The Netherlands, were shown to represent two novel ascomycetous yeast species of the genus Kazachstania by 18S rDNA, internal transcribed spacer (ITS) region (including 5.8S rDNA) and 26S rDNA D1/D2 domain sequence analysis and electrophoretic karyotype comparison. The names Kazachstania aquatica sp. nov. and Kazachstania solicola sp. nov. are proposed for strains AS 2.0706(T) and CBS 6904(T), respectively. Phylogenetically, the two novel species are closely related to Kazachstania aerobia, Kazachstania servazzii and Kazachstania unispora.

[show abstract][hide abstract] ABSTRACT: In an investigation of the yeast biota involved in silage deterioration, a considerable number of strains belonging to Saccharomyces and related genera were isolated from aerobically deteriorating corn silage in Tochigi, Japan. Analysis of sequences of the internal transcribed spacer and the large-subunit rRNA gene D1/D2 domain and electrophoretic karyotyping indicated that two of the strains, NS 14(T) and NS 26, represent a novel species with close phylogenetic relationships to Kazachstania servazzii and Kazachstania unispora. It is proposed that the novel species be named Kazachstania aerobia sp. nov., with NS 14(T) (=AS 2.2384(T)=CBS 9918(T)) as the type strain.
