Debaryomyces nepalensis S. Goto & Sugiyama 1968.

 Description: Growth in glucose-yeast extract-peptone broth: After 3 days at 25 °C, the cells are sphoidal or short ovoidal (2.4 - 5.3 × 2.9 - 5.5 μm), single, in pairs or in short-chain. Vegetative reproduction is accomplished by multilateral budding. Sediment is present. Growth on glucose-yeast extract-peptone agar: After 3 days at 25°C, streak cultures are creamy to cream, butyrous, smooth, and glistening. The margin is entire. Dalmau plate culture on corn meal agar: After 10 days at 25°C, pseudomycelium and mycelium are absent. Formation of ascospores: Sporulation was observed on Fowell acetate agar after 7 days at 18℃, conjugation occurs between cells and their buds, and the asci were persistent. Each ascus contained one ascospore with warty surface.
