Trichosporon is a genus of anamorphic fungi in the family Trichosporonaceae. All species of Trichosporon are yeasts with no known teleomorphs. Most are typically isolated from soil, but several species occur as a natural part of the skin microbiota of humans and other animals.

Trichosporon guehoae is able to assimilate several aliphatic and aromatic compounds as sole source of carbon.

This genome was sequenced as part of the 1000 fungal genomes project.
