*All 19 isolates were internal transcribed spacer genotype 1 and belonged to multilocus sequence typing clade C1. DST, diploid sequence type; TAG, TAG polymorphism; GSI, Great Saltee Island off the southeastern coast of Ireland; TCD, Trinity College Dublin.
†Assigned to each isolate according the recommended multilocus sequence typing scheme for C. dubliniensis (scheme D) (7). All DSTs, except for DST1 and DST 2, are new.
