Franziozyma bambusicola

Franziozyma bambusicola Q.M. Wang, D. Begerow and M. Groenew, in Li, Wang et al., Frontiers in Microbiology 12(no. 777338): 24 (2022)

Etymology: the specific epithet bambusicola refers to the origin of the substrate of the type strain of this species.

Diagnosis: After 10 days at 17C on 5% malt extract agar, colonies are cream, soft or tough, usually glabrous, or sometimes pubescent, shiny or dull, ridged, and with an eroded margin. Hyphae are narrow and cylindrical, usually 1.01.3 × 3060 µm, sometimes regularly branched. Chlamydospores occur intercalarily or terminally and are single, subglobose or ellipsoidal, 4.06.0 × 610 µm. Sexual structures are not produced on YM, YPD, V8, and CM agars. Ballistoconidia are ellipsoidal orallantoid, 2.32.7 × 13.618.2 µm.

Glucose is not fermented. Glucose, sucrose, maltose, cellobiose, trehalose, raffinose, inulin, soluble starch, glycerol, erythritol, D-mannitol, and D-glucitol are assimilated. Galactose, L-sorbose, lactose, melibiose, melezitose, D-xylose, L-arabinose, D-arabinose, D-ribose, L-rhamnose, D-glucosamine, methanol, ethanol, ribitol, galactitol, α-Methyl-D-glucoside, salicin, D Llactate, and succinate, citrate, myo-inositol, and hexadecane are not assimilated. The maximum growth temperature is 22C. Growth in the vitamin-free medium is weak. No starch-like substrate is produced. Growth does not occur on 50% (w/w) glucose-yeast extract agar Urease and Diazonium blue B reactions are positive.
