Summary

Two strains ofEeniella nana were examined for their partial base sequences of 18S and 26S rRNAs. In the partial base sequences of 18S rRNA (prositions 1451 through 1618, 168 bases) the strains ofE. nana have five, five, four and eleven base differences with those ofDekkera bruxellensis (type species).D. anomala (andBrettanomyces anomalus),D. naardenensis andD. custersiana, respectively. In the 26S rRNA partial base sequencings (positions 1611 through 1835, 225 bases and positions 493 through 622, 130 bases) the base differences were 46, 43, 34 and 40 and the percent similarities were 53–54, 51–54, 56–57 and 51–53, respectively. The sequence data obtained are discussed phylogenetically and taxonomically, especially on retention of the generic nameEeniella.
