The appearance of a white, thready yeast, commonly known as kahm yeast, is often a byproduct of the lactofermentation (or pickling) of certain vegetables, usually the result of exposure to air. Although harmless, it can give pickled vegetables a bad flavour and so must be removed regularly during fermentation.<ref name=Kaufmann2002/>

Yeasts are very common in the environment, and are often isolated from sugar-rich material. Examples include naturally occurring yeasts on the skins of fruits and berries (such as [[grape]]s, [[apple]]s or [[peach]]es), and exudates from plants (such as plant saps or cacti). Some yeasts are found in association with soil and insects.<ref name=Suh2005/><ref name=Slavikova2003/> The [[ecology|ecological]] function and [[biodiversity]] of yeasts are relatively unknown compared to those of other [[microorganism]]s.<ref name=Herrera2002/> Yeasts, including ''[[Candida albicans]]'', ''[[Rhodotorula|Rhodotorula rubra]]'', ''[[Torulopsis]]'' and ''[[Trichosporon cutaneum]]'', have been found living in between people's toes as part of their [[skin flora]].<ref name=Oyeka2002/> Yeasts are also present in the [[gut flora]] of mammals and some insects<ref name=Martini1992/> and even deep-sea environments host an array of yeasts.<ref name=Bass2007/><ref>{{cite doi|10.1002/yea.1599}}</ref>
 
 
An Indian study of seven [[honey bee|bee]] species and 9 plant species found 45 species from 16 genera colonise the [[nectaries]] of flowers and honey stomachs of bees. Most were members of the ''[[Candida (genus)|Candida]]'' genus; the most common species in honey stomachs was ''[[Dekkera intermedia]]'' and in flower nectaries, ''[[Candida blankii]]''.<ref name=Sandhu1985/> Yeast colonising nectaries of the [[Stinking Hellebore|stinking hellebore]] have been found to raise the temperature of the flower, which may aid in attracting pollinators by increasing the evaporation of [[volatile organic compounds]].<ref name=Herrera2002/><ref name=Barley2010/> A black yeast has been recorded as a partner in a complex relationship between [[ant]]s, their [[ant-fungus mutualism|mutualistic fungus]], a fungal [[parasite]] of the fungus and a [[bacterium]] that kills the parasite. The yeast have a negative effect on the bacteria that normally produce [[antibiotic]]s to kill the parasite and so may affect the ants' health by allowing the parasite to spread.<ref name=Little2008/>

If this is a false positive, then you're right, and the bot is wrong - you don't need to explain why.
