    Abstract

    Five yeast strains isolated from plant leaves collected in southeast 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 (ITS) region indicated that these strains represented two novel species of the genus Bensingtonia. Bensingtonia rectispora sp. nov. (type strain: XZ 4C5T = CGMCC 2.02635T = CBS 10710 T) and Bensingtonia bomiensis sp. nov. (type strain: XZ 33D1T = CGMCC 2.02670T=CBS 10713T) are proposed for the two new species, which are phylogenetically closely related with Bensingtonia naganoensis, Bensingtonia pseudonaganoensis and the type species of the genus Bensingtonia ciliata.
