This study aimed to isolate wild yeasts from waters and soils on the riversides of Geumgang upstream in Geumsan, seashores of Cheongpodae in Taean and Suncheonman in Suncheon, Korea, and to investigate their unrecorded microbiological characteristics. Forty-nine species of wild yeasts, including Aureobasidium pullans YH 4-3, were isolated from 40 samples of Cheonnaegang in Geumgang upstream. Fifty-six species and 36 species of wild yeasts were also isolated from 80 samples of Cheongpodae Beach and Suncheonman Mashland, respectively. Species from

Fig. 1. Phylogenetic tree of the unrecorded yeasts isolated from freshwaters and soils of Cheonnaegang in Geumgang upstream, based on the nucleotide sequences of large subunit 26S ribosomal DNA D1/D2 region. The tree was generated by the neighbor-joining method, using MEGA 7. The bar indicates the number of substitutions per position. The new isolates from the present study are shown in bold and its detailed characteristics were described in Table 4.
