Bensingtonia rectispora sp. nov. and Bensingtonia bomiensis sp. nov., ballistoconidium-forming yeast species from Tibetan plant leaves.


PMID 22081720

Abstract

Five yeast strains isolated from plant leaves collected in south-east Tibet formed cream to brownish colonies and produced asymmetrical ballistoconidia and CoQ-9 as the major ubiquinone. Sequence analysis of the 26S rRNA D1/D2 domain and the internal transcribed spacer region indicated that these strains represented two novel species of the genus Bensingtonia. The names Bensingtonia rectispora sp. nov. (type strain XZ 4C5(T) = CGMCC 2.02635(T) = CBS 10710(T)) and Bensingtonia bomiensis sp. nov. (type strain XZ 33D1(T) = CGMCC 2.02670(T) = CBS 10713(T)) are proposed for the two novel species, which are phylogenetically closely related to Bensingtonia naganoensis, Bensingtonia pseudonaganoensis and the type species of the genus, Bensingtonia ciliata.
