Taxonomic characteristics of seven bacterial strains which were isolated from soil and hydrolyze resistant curdlan were studied. These bacteria were aerobic, spore-forming rods, contained menaquinone 7 as a major quinone, contained anteiso-C and iso-C as major cellular fatty acids, had guanine-plus-cytosine contents of 50 to 52 mol%, and could be divided into two groups on the basis of physiological and chemotaxonomic characteristics and DNA-DNA hybridization data. We propose the following two new species: for strains YK9, YK121, YK161, YK201, and YK203, with type strain YK9 (= IFO 15724); and for strains YK205 and YK207, with type strain YK205 (= IFO 15729).
