Technical Abstract: This chapter describes the ascomycete yeast genus Kodamaea and is to be published in The Yeasts, A Taxonomic Study, 5th edition. The genus Kodamaea has five assigned species and all are associated with wood boring insects. Many of the species appear worldwide in distribution. One of the species, K. ohmeri, is an opportunistic human pathogen. K. ohmeri also appears to be associated with the decline of honey bee hives, although it is not a known pathogen of honey bees.
