Two strains were isolated from sour cassava starch fermentation. The cells were Gram-positive, catalase-negative, non-spore-forming, nonmotile rods. They produced only (+)lactate and were homofermentative. Growth occurred at pH values of 5·0-7·0 and optimum growth occurred at pH 6·0. Growth was positive at 15 and 45 °C. The DNA G+C content was 48·4±0·2 mol%. Sequence analysis of the 16S rRNA gene revealed that strains OND 32and YAM 1 clustered with, but were separate from -related taxa. Protein pattern and sequence analyses of the 16S rRNA gene confirmed that the two new isolates represent a new species, for which the name is proposed; strain OND 32is the type strain of this species.
