- Four strains, CB 266ᵀ, CB 272, XZ 44D1ᵀ and XZ 49D2, isolated from shrub plant leaves in China were identified as two novel species of the genus Ballistosporomyces by the sequence analysis of the small subunit of ribosomal RNA (SSU rRNA), the D1/D2 domains of the large subunit of rRNA (LSU rRNA) and internal transcribed spacer (ITS) + 5.8S rRNA region, and physiological comparisons. Ballistosporomyces changbaiensis sp. nov. (type strain CB 266ᵀ = CGMCC 2.02298ᵀ = CBS 10124ᵀ, Mycobank number MB 815700) and Ballistosporomyces bomiensis sp. nov. (type strain XZ 44D1ᵀ = CGMCC 2.02661ᵀ = CBS 12512ᵀ, Mycobank number MB 815701) are proposed to accommodate these two new species.
