Three new asexual yeast species were isolated from various floricolous insects. Candida cleridarum sp. nov. was the dominant species in clerid beetles collected in flowers of various cacti in Arizona and Southern California. The sequence of the D1D2 domains of the large-subunit rDNA showed that it is a sister species to Candida fragi (0.9% base difference), a yeast isolated once from fermenting strawberries. Candida tilneyi sp. nov. and Candida powellii sp. nov. were recovered from bees and…

Four novel Candida species in the Candida albicans/Lodderomyces elongisporus clade isolated from the gut of flower beetles

Based on the 26S rDNA D1/D2 domain and internal transcribed spacer region sequence analysis and phenotypic characterization, four novel anamorphic yeast species located in the Candida albicans/Lodderomyces elongisporus clade were identified from 18 of the strains isolated.

Candida stigmatis sp. nov., a new anamorphic yeast species isolated from flowers.

Four strains of a previously unknown yeast species are described for which the name Candida stigmatis is proposed, and the new species formed a cluster with a group of six closely related anamorph Candida species.

Candida potacharoeniae sp. nov. and Candida spenceri sp. nov., two novel galactose-containing ascomycetous anamorphic yeast species isolated in Thailand.

Fifteen strains of anamorphic yeasts isolated from various natural substrates collected in various places in Thailand were found to represent two novel species of anamorphic yeast genus Candida based

Pichia dushanensis sp. nov. and Hyphopichia paragotoi sp. nov., two sexual yeast species associated with insects and rotten wood.

Seven yeast strains were isolated from the gut of insect larvae and decayed wood, which were collected from three localities near Nanyang, Henan Province, China. These strains were identified as two

Starmerella meliponinorum sp. nov., a novel ascomycetous yeast species associated with stingless bees.

The sequence of the D1/D2 domains of the large-subunit rDNA showed that the novel species belongs to the Starmerella clade and is most closely related to Candida etchellsii, although the two differ in their sequences by 7% base substitutions.

Two new anamorphic yeasts, Candida thailandica sp. nov. and Candida lignicola sp. nov., isolated from insect frass in Thailand.

Two new yeast strains of the genus Candida were isolated from insect frass collected in Khao-Yai National Park, Nakhonrachasima, Thailand and were found to represent two distinct undescribed species and were named Candida thailandica sp.

Starmerella caucasica sp. nov., a novel anamorphic yeast species isolated from flowers in the Caucasus.

Taxonomic analysis of budding yeast strains isolated from flowers of Wisteria sinensis abundantly visited by flying insects, mainly bees in city parks of Baku is described, indicating a close relationship with Candida kuoi and Starmerella bombicola in the phylogenetic analysis.

A novel ascosporogenous yeast species, Zygosaccharomyces siamensis, and the sugar tolerant yeasts associated with raw honey collected in Thailand

The hypothesis that the new species, Zygosaccharomyces siamensis, is a novel ascosporogenous yeast is supported, as it was found that members of the type β can be regarded as separate species.

Two new species of the genus Candida in the Zygoascus clade, Candida lundiana sp. nov. and Candida suthepensis sp. nov., isolated from raw honey in Thailand

During a survey of yeasts associated with raw honey collected in Thailand, two strains of the Zygoascus clade were isolated from the Asian cavity-nesting honeybee Apis cerana and the stingless bee Homotrigona fimbriata that could be unquestionably distinguished from their relatives by rDNA sequences and other taxonomic characteristics.

Starmerella orientalis f.a., sp. nov., an ascomycetous yeast species isolated from flowers.

Four strains of a novel ascomycetous yeast species isolated from flowers in Iran and China indicated that these strains belong to the Starmerella clade and show divergence from previously described species in this clade.

Five new yeast species are described to accommodate isolates recovered from flowers and floricolous insects of Australian Hibiscus trees, cosmopolitan morning glories (Ipomoea spp.) and Brazilian cereoid cacti and PFGE indicates that these yeasts have an unusually low number of chromosomes.

Seven strains of a heterothallic haploid yeast species were isolated from flowers of Calystegia sepium and associated sap beetles of the genus Conotelus, finding sequences of the D1/D2 variable domain of the large subunit of the rDNAs of three strains differed by only one or two bases from that of the type strain.
