Abstract : A new yeast species, Torulopsis bombicola, is described, that produces extracellular hydroxy fatty acid sophorosides. It utilizes relatively few carbon compounds. It forms a mannan having a proton magnetic resonance spectrum similar to the spectra of the galactomannans of Torulopsis apis, Torulopsis nodaensis and T. magnoliae, but differing from those of T. gropengiesseri galactomannan and T. apicola mannan.
