Bandoniozyma Boekhout, P. Valente, Pagnocca, C.A. Rosa, C.F. Lee, S.O. Suh, M. Blackw., G. Péter & Fell 2012, in Valente et al., PLoS ONE 7(10): e46060 (2012).

Etymology: The genus is named in honour of Robert (Bob) J. Bandoni, University of British Columbia, who dedicated his life to the study of the Tremellales.

Diagnosis: Budding cells are globose, subglobose, ovoid or ellipsoidal. Asexual reproduction is by polar or multilateral budding. Colonies are white, cream- colored to yellowish, smooth and butyrous ormucoid. Hyphae or pseudohyphae may be present. Clamp connections may be present. Sexual reproduction was not observed. Ballistoconidia are not produced. Fermentation of glucose is generally present. Diazonium blue B and urease reactions are positive. Growth on myo-inositol and D-glucuronate are positive, but growth on nitrate is negative. Starch-like compounds are generally formed.
