The Lipomycetaceae are a family of yeasts in the order Saccharomycetales. According to the 2007 Outline of Ascomycota, the family contains five genera; however, the placement of the genus Kawasakia is uncertain.[1] Species in the family have a widespread distribution, and grow in the soil or in association with insects.[2]
