Abstract

Thirty-two strains, many of them isolated from wood-associated habitats, and designated as Kuraishia (Pichia) capsulata and Candida molischiana according to their phenotype, exhibited two types of Hae III restriction fragment patterns of their small subunit rDNA with the neighboring ITS. One fragment pattern corresponded to that of the type strain of K. capsulata, whereas the other pattern was unique to the typestrain of C. molischiana. Sequencing of the D1/D2 domain of the large subunit rDNA confirmed that the different Hae III restriction fragment patterns of small subunit rDNA with the neighboring ITS reliably distinguished K. capsulata from C. molischiana. Ascospore formation was observed in several C. molischiana strains and K. molischiana (type strain: NCAIM Y.01725, CBS 9993) is proposed as the teleomorphic state of Candida molischiana.
