Three strains related to Cryptococcus flavus were isolated from plants collected in the Priokskoterrasny biosphere reserve (Russia). Physiological characterization, mycocinotyping, sequencing of the D1/D2 domain of the 26S rDNA and the ITS region revealed their separate taxonomic position. The name Cryptococcus paraflavus is proposed to accommodate these isolates (type strain VKM Y-2923).
