When: 2015-10-29

Collection location: Port Charlotte, Florida, USA [Click for map]

Who: Matthew Schink (MSchink)

No specimen available

Isolated multiple times from the surface of a specimen of Tomophagus colossus sent to me from Port Charlotte Florida.

Pink to light red colonies, the white colonies may be due to exposure to UVC.

I am not familiar with yeasts but this seems to fit the general description of Rhodotorula.

Cells are 3-5x 3-4 µm
