In a study of yeast diversity in Thailand, eight strains of hitherto undescribed anamorphic yeasts were isolated: four from insect frass, two from Marasmius sp. fruiting bodies, one from a flower, and one from jackfruit exudates. Phylogenetic analysis of the D1/D2 domain of 26S ribosomal DNA nucleotide sequences indicated that the eight strains represented two new species related to Candida friedrichii. Genetic separation of the two new species was further supported by DNA–DNA hybridization… 
Candida wancherniae sp. nov. and Candida morakotiae sp. nov., two novel ascomycetous anamorphic yeast species found in Thailand.
Seven yeast strains isolated from natural substrates of Thailand were found to represent two novel species of Candida, an ascomycetous anamorphic genus and a single species which is related to Candida corydali in a neighbor-joining tree based on the D1/D2 sequences.
Yamadazyma endophytica f.a. sp. nov., an ascomycetous yeast species isolated from leaf tissue.
A phylogenetic analysis based on the combined sequences of the internal transcribed spacer (ITS) region and the D1/D2 region of the LSU rRNA gene indicated that strain DMKU-CE23T belongs to the Yamadazyma clade and is clearly distinct from other related species.
Yeasts from phylloplane and their capability to produce indole-3-acetic acid
Diversity of yeasts other than ballistoconidium-forming yeast in phylloplane in a tropical country in Asia has been reported for the first time and 39 strains in 20 species showed the capability of producing IAA when cultivated in yeast extract peptone dextrose broth supplemented with 0.1 % l-tryptophan.
Allodekkera sacchari gen. nov., sp. nov., a yeast species in the Saccharomycetales isolated from a sugar factory.
Physiological and biochemical characters revealed distinct differences between the three isolates and Dekkera/Brettanomyces species, including the ability to assimilate several carbon sources and inability to ferment glucose.
A new Barnettozyma species forming hat-shaped ascospores isolated from soil in Japan.
Two strains isolated from natural substrates in Rishiri Island, which belongs to the subarctic zone, produced hat-shaped ascorspores and showed that reproduction occurred by conjugation of a larger cell and a smaller one, and it is proposed that the group represent a new species, B. sucrosica sp.
Richness and biotechnological potential of the yeast community associated with the bromeliad phylloplane in the Brazilian Neotropical Forest
The phylloplane-associated yeast communities of bromeliads at four sites in the Brazilian Northern Atlantic Forest demonstrated a high heterogeneity and richness not yet found in previous studies on bromliads, with a significant number of potential new species.
Endospore formation in Hanseniaspora pseudoguilliermondii: a key characteristics of the species
The formation of endospores was considered to be a species-delimiting character of H. pseudoguilliermondii and was compared with other species of the genus by observing their type strains.
New species of Yamadazyma from rotting wood in China
Abstract Yamadazyma is one of the largest genera in the family Debaryomycetaceae (Saccharomycetales, Saccharomycetes) with species mainly found in rotting wood, insects and their resulting frass, but
Behind the nectar: the yeast community in bromeliads inflorescences after the exudate removal
Bromeliads are neotropical plants endowed with an extensive variety of floral structures, including inflorescences that combine elements of both leaves and flowers, making these organisms unique.
Yeasts in Insects and Other Invertebrates
Future studies of yeast–insect associations will continue to include species discovery but also approach theoretical questions of sexual and asexual reproduction, host specificity, host switching, advantages of horizontal and vertical dispersal, and studies that include entire interactive communities.


Candida easanensis sp. nov., Candida pattaniensis sp. nov. and Candida nakhonratchasimensis sp. nov., three new species of yeasts isolated from insect frass in Thailand.
