Full Text:



Curvibasidium rogersii sp. nov. (Microbotryomycetes, Basidiomycota) is described on the basis of a strain (NRRL Y-48849) isolated from wine grapes (Vitis vinifera) in Washington state (USA). The taxonomic position of the strain was determined through analysis of the ITS region and the D1/D2 domains of the LSU rRNA gene. Physiological and morphological data also are presented. A basidial state was not observed.
