I've just started identifying yeast species and have trouble identifying
one isolate at the moment. Using API 20C Aux -kit I've identified the
isolate as C. guilliermondii or C. famata. I've grown the isolate on
corn meal agar -plates to see if hyphae appear. Are there any
differences in fermentation of carbohydrates between these species or
any additional tests I could perform?

I'm wondering if it would be possible to obtain samples of these two
yeast species?

I'm eagerly waiting for a reply!

Thank you :)
