Hi Jan,
     This species was apparently transferred out of Cryptococcus, and now called Cystofilobasidium infirmominiatum.  A Google search for this name combination might help, or perhaps the following article (this medline citation includes the senior author's e-mail address, at least at the time of publication):

Int J Syst Bacteriol. 1999 Apr;49 Pt 2:907-13.

Cystofilobasidiales, a new order of basidiomycetous yeasts.

The order Cystofilobasidiales is described for teleomorphic basidiomycetous yeasts with holobasidia and teliospores. Their septa have dolipores, but lack parenthesomes. D-Glucuronate, nitrate and nitrite are assimilated and myoinositol is usually assimilated. Coenzyme Q has 8 or 10 isoprenologues. 25S and 18S rDNA sequence analysis indicates a monophyletic branch within the Tremellomycetidae of the Hymenomycetes. Cystofilobasidium is the type genus.
