Abstract Two new yeast species were isolated from flowers of Hibiscus species in Eastern and Northern Australia. Kodamaea kakaduensis is heterothallic, haploid, and similar to other Kodamaea species and to Candida restingae. Buds are often produced on short protuberances, and a true mycelium is formed. The new species differs from others by the assimilation of trehalose, melezitose, and xylitol, and is reproductively isolated. The cells of Candida tolerans are small and a pseudomycelium is formed. The carbon and nitrogen assimilation pattern is reminiscent of that of Zygosaccharomyces rouxii but the two are not closely related. Sequences of the D1/D2 domain of large subunit ribosomal DNA confirm the membership of K. kakaduensis in the genus Kodamaea and indicate that C. tolerans belongs to the Clavispora-Metschnikowia clade, with a moderate relatedness to Candida mogii. The type strains are: K. kakaduensis, UWO(PS)98-119.2 (h+, holotype, CBS 8611) and UWO(PS)98-117.1 (h-, isotype, CBS 8612); and C. tolerans, UWO(PS)98-115.5 (CBS 8613).
