We present data demonstrating that the strain DBVPG 3827 does not belong to C. stellata. From the results of physiological analysis, electrophoretic karyotyping, the PCR-RFLP of the ITS1-5.8S-ITS2 region and the nucleotide sequence of the D1/D2 domain of the 26S rDNA it can be concluded that DBVPG 3827 is a strain of Starmerella bombicola. This finding, and the recent observation that C. stellata can easily be confused with C. zemplinina in tests of conventional taxonomy, urges a critical revision of the enological role(s) attributed by researchers to C. stellata.
