Twenty-two yeast strains of 15 species were isolated from the leaves of 20 trees on Oknyeobong Peak, and 24 yeast strains of 12 species were isolated from the leaves of 20 trees on Yeonjasan Mountain in Daejeon city, Korea. (5 strains) and Aureobasidium pullulans (8 strains) were the predominant isolates from Oknyeobong Peak and Yeonjasan Mountain, respectively. Of a total of 46 yeast strains, JSL508, JSL509, and JSL510 from Okyeobong Peak, and JSL514, JSL0193, and JSL0196 from Yeonjasan Mountain were determined to be yeast strains that were yet unrecorded in Korea. Morphological and cultural characteristics of these unrecorded yeasts were investigated. Erythrobasidium hasegawanium JSL0193 and Rhodotorula nothofagi JSL0196 did not form ascospores and pseudomycelia. All the strains, except JSL510, were halotolerant or halophilic, and JSL508 and JSL510 were thermophilic, growing at 37°C.
