Interpretive Summary:

Technical Abstract: This chapter describes the ascomycete yeast genus Zygotorulaspora and is to be published in “The Yeasts, A Taxonomic Study, 5th edition.” The two species in this genus were at different times placed in the genera Torulaspora, Zygosaccharomyces and Saccharomyces. Multigene phylogenetic analysis showed that they represented a separate clade most closely related to the genus Torulaspora. Consequently, based on sequence analysis, they were placed in a separate genus, Zygotorulaspora. The species appear to be worldwide in distribution and are occasionally the cause of food spoilage.
