Carlosrosaea A.M. Yurkov, X.Z. Liu, F.Y. Bai, M. Groenew. & Boekhout, in Liu et al., Studies in Mycology 81: 113 (2015)
Etymology: The genus is named in honour of the Brazilian yeast taxonomist and ecologist Carlos A. Rosa.
Diagnosis: Basidiocarps not known. Pseudohyphae and true hyphae not observed in culture. Sexual reproduction not observed in culture. Budding cells present. Ballistoconidia may be present. Fermentation absent. Nitrate sometimes utilised. Starch-like compounds not produced. Major CoQ system unknown.
Index Fungorum number: IF814756
Type species: Carlosrosaea vrieseae (Landell, L.R. Brandão, Safar, F.C.O. Gomes, C.R. Félix, A.R.O. Santos, D.M. Pagani, J.P. Ramos, Broetto, T. Mott, Vainstein, P. Valente & C.A. Rosa) Yurkov, Xin Zhan Liu, F.Y. Bai, M. Groenew. & Boekhout, in Liu et al., Studies in Mycology 81: 113 (2015)
Notes: Relationships between Bullera vrieseae and other Trimorphomycataceae remained unclear in the expanded analysis of the LSU rRNA gene sequences. B. vrieseae was distantly related to B. miyagiana (Sugitazyma) and showed additionally distinct phenotypic characters (Landell et al. 2015). Liu et al. (2015b) proposed to erect a new genus for this single-species lineage to restrict the genus Bullera emend. to the type lineage in the family Bulleraceae. The genus Carlosrosaea contains currently five species.

Figure 1. Phylogenetic relationships of yeasts and related taxa from the order Tremellales in Tremellomycetes obtained by maximum-likelihood analysis of LSU (D1/D2 domains) rRNA gene. Tree topology was backbone-constrained with the well-supported (>85 %) bipartitions of the topology of the seven-genes tree (Liu et al. 2015a). Bootstrap percentages (BP) of maximum likelihood and neighbour-joining analyses from 1 000 replicates are shown respectively from left to right on the deep and major branches resolved and in brackets following recognised clades. The type species of accepted genera are in bold and the taxa not included in the seven-genes dataset (Liu et al. 2015a) are in red. Note: ns, not supported (BP < 50 %).
