In the present work, we investigated the phylogenetic position and phenotypic characteristics ofeight yeast isolates collected from migratory birds on the island of Ustica, Italy. A phylogeneticanalysis based on the D1/D2 region of the large-subunit rRNA gene showed that all isolatesclustered as a single separate lineage within the Wickerhamomyces clade. They exhibited distinctmorphological and physiological characteristics and were clearly separated from their closestrelatives, Wickerhamomyces lynferdii, Wickerhamomyces anomalus and Wickerhamomycessubpelliculosus, in BLASTN searches. On the basis of the isolation source, physiological featuresand molecular strain typing carried out with randomly amplified polymorphic DNA (RAPD)-PCRand minisatellite-primed (MSP)-PCR analysis, the isolates were identified as strains of the samespecies. The name Wickerhamomyces sylviae f.a., sp. nov. is proposed to accommodate thesenovel strains; the type strain is U88A2T (5PYCC 6345T5CBS 12888T). The MycoBank numberis MB 804762.
