Colonies on mDixon agar smooth and flat with a sticky texture . This species is lipid-dependent requiring olive oil for growth on routine media.
Yeast cells are cylindrical, measuring 1.5-2.0 x 4.0-6.0µm. Wet preparations reveal yeast cells with daughter cells being produced from a broad base and measuring up to 10 µm prior to detachment of the daughter cell .
In vitro susceptibility data
Susceptibility testing according to NCCLS/CLSI Document M27-A2 is not possible due to the oleic acid requirement of this species.
