Okibacterium fritillariae gen. nov., sp. nov. (type strain VKM Ac-2059T = IFO 16404T) is proposed for aerobic, oxidase- and catalase-positive, coryneform bacteria isolated from seeds of Fritillaria ruthenica Wikstr. and Clematis recta L. Strains of the new genus form a distinct branch within the phylogenetic cluster composed of members of the family Microbacteriaceae and are characterized by B-type peptidoglycan containing amino acids glycine, glutamate, homoserine, alanine and lysine, the glycolyl type of muramic acid, the major menaquinones MK-10 and MK-11, the principal phospholipids phosphatidylglycerol and diphosphatidylglycerol, and a DNA G+C content of approximately 67 mol %.
