  • J. P. van der Walt
  • D. B. Scott


An undescribed, ascogenous, filamentous yeast species has been recovered from the ectosymbiontic fungal flora associated with xylomycetophagous Scolytoidea infesting indigenous trees along the North Coast of Natal and the South Coast of the Cape Province.

A description of the new species is given.

Ein bisher nicht beschriebene askogene, mycelbildende Hefeart wurde von der ectosymbiotischen Pilzflora in Gemeinschaft mit xylomycetophagen Scolytoidea isoliert. Diese Ambrosiakäfer fallen einheimische Bäume entlang der Nordkuste Natals und der Südkuste der Kapprovinz an.

Die neue Art wurde beschrieben.
