- A novel species of the black yeast genus Exophiala (order Chaetothyriales) is described. Strains were repeatedly obtained
by enriching samples of wild berries from different plants, guano-rich soil and from oak railway ties treated with arsenic
creosote under a toluene-rich atmosphere. An identical strain was encountered in a closed arsenic mine polluted by alkyl benzenes.
Its potential use for purposes of bioremediation is discussed.
