Wickerhamiella domercqiae, photographed by Linda Barnett.

Belongs within: Saccharomycotina.

The Dipodascales are a group of yeasts united by molecular data. Their cell walls may be composed of glucose, mannose and galactose, or of glucose and mannose alone, and they lack extracellular amyloid compounds (Schweigkofler et al. 2002).
