Strains of an undescribed, diploid heterothallic yeast species, H. euphorbiaphila sp. nov. were recovered from material of a moribund, insect-infested specimen of Euphorbia ingens in the Groblersdal (Transvaal, South Africa) area. The new species shows some agreement with the conifer-associated taxa cited as H. bimundalis var. bimundalis and H. bimundalis var. americana. A description of the new species is given.
