Based on IGS-PCR RFLP polymorphism, we previously detected two Z. rouxiistrains (CECT 11923 and CECT 10425) that clustered with hybrid strains (NCYC 1682, NCYC 3060 and NCYC 3061). Given the recently recognized important industrial role of hybrids, their detection is very useful. Based on the IGS1 rDNA region alignment of hybrid strains and the Z. rouxii CECT 11923 and CECT 10425, in this work, we developed a pair of Zygosaccharomyces hybrid-specific primers, HibZF/HibZR. Positive amplicons were only obtained in the Zygosaccharomyces spp. hybrids included in this study and the CECT 11923 and CECT 10425 strains analyzed here. In the present study, we applied molecular tools to highlight the nature of these strains; they are quite different from each other as well as from Z. rouxii type strain. Based on the presence of two heterologous copies of nuclear-encoded genes (SOD2 and HIS3), the sequences of divergent 5.8S-ITS rDNA, D1/D2 26S rDNA copies and, the amplification with species-specific primer for Z. rouxii and Z. pseudorouxii, we hypothesize that the CECT 11923 strain might be a hybrid strain. Whereas, CECT 10425, the sequence analysis of 5.8S-ITS rDNA and D1/D2 26S rDNA copies presented 99–100% sequence identity with Zygosaccharomyces sp. NBRC 10669 (LN849119.1) and Z. sapae ABT 301T. Nevertheless, we discard that it could be a Z. sapae strain based on the results obtained in this study. Namely, the amplification with hybrid-specific primer designed in this study, the number of divergent copies of HIS3 (2), the fact that it only possesses one SOD2 gene and the amplification with species-specific primer for Z. pseudorouxii, therefore it could be a new species or a hybrid strain.
