According to Augusto Capriotti, who collected the species and named it 
(see Annali di Microbiologia ed Enzimologia (1967) 17:79), Saccharomyces 
servazzii was named in honor of Prof. Ottone Servazzi, Director of the 
Instituto di Patologia Vegetale dell'Universita di Sassari - Italy.

Just thought I would clear that up.

By the way, I missed one of the yeast species on my list.  Would anyone 
know of a library constructed from Saccaromyces unisporus?
