Nitrate-positive strains of a filobasidiaceous anamorphic yeast related to Cryptococcus cylindricus were isolated from forest litter in a Russian nature reserve and from a lichen in Portuguese one. Mycocinotyping and rDNA sequence analysis revealed that the strains represent a novel species, for which the name Cryptococcus silvicola (type strain VKM Y-2939=CBS 10099) is proposed.
