Diverse wild yeast were isolated from freshwaters and soils of Nakdong and Yeongsan rivers in Korea and identified
by the comparison of polymerase chain reaction-amplified nucleotide sequences of the internal transcribed spacer region
(including the 5.8S rRNA) and D1/D2 regions of 26S rDNA, using BLAST. In total, 15 strains belonging to 9 species were isolated
from 25 samples, out of which and were dominant. JSF0127
and i JSF0130 were identified as unrecorded yeasts, for which their mycological characteristics were investigated.
These unrecorded yeasts formed ascospores and grew in yeast extract peptone dextrose medium containing 5% NaCl.
