Phylogenetic analysis of the 16S rRNA gene of bacterial isolates from garden soil showed relatedness to Weissella kandleri and Weissella confusa. However, the sequences had notable differences, and DNA-DNA hybridizations confirmed that the isolates are separate from these two species. The isolates could be further distinguished from all previously described Weissella species by electrophoretic analysis of whole-cell proteins, as well as by the results from different biochemical tests. The name Weissella soli is proposed for the new species, the type strain being Mi268T (= LMG 20113T = DSM 14420T).
