A new species of the genus , is proposed for strains which were mostly isolated from root nodules and rhizospheres of alder trees and were formerly assigned to the species . Strains of this new species could be differentiated from representatives of by deoxyribonucleic acid homology data (17 to 29% relatedness), as well as by their ability to grow on salicin and D-gluconate, their failure to produce acid from cellobiose and -inositol, their resistance to penicillin and carbenicillin (10 g/ml), and other characteristics. Phenotypic features and low levels of deoxyribonucleic acid homology distinguish from two other species of the genus and . The type strain of is strain 3LS (= VKM Ac-901).
