Technical Abstract: This book chapter provides extensive descriptions of the four species assigned to the ascosporic yeast genus Sugiyamaella. The species are heterothallic and produce asci with a single ascospore. Most strains of each species have been isolated from insect borings in trees. Species distribution ranges from the Northern to the Southern hemispheres. Associated with Sugiyamaella are 12 species of the genus Candida, which do not form ascospores.
