Abstract

Strain JC268 was isolated from pebbles collected from a dam located in Lalitpur, Uttar Pradesh, India. Cells of strain JC268 were coccoid, appeared in pairs/triads/tetrads or short chains and were Gram-stain-positive, non-spore-forming, non-motile and obligately aerobic. Strain JC268 was catalase- and oxidase-positive and utilized citrate for growth. The genomic DNA G+C content of strain JC268 was 65.3 mol%. The cell-wall peptidoglycan contained -lysine–-serine–-aspartic acid as interpeptide bridge with the type A4α. The major menaquinone was MK-8(H). Major (>10 %) fatty acids were iso-C, iso-CH and anteiso-Cω9. Diphosphatidylglycerol, phosphoglycolipid, phosphatidylinositol, glycolipid, four unidentified lipids, an amino lipid and phospholipid were the polar lipids of strain JC268. EzTaxon-e search of 16S rRNA gene sequences showed that strain JC268 has highest similarity to 39 (98.65 %) and MSW-24 (97.8 %) of the family . Genome reassociation (based on DNA–DNA hybridization) of strain JC268 with CGMCC 4.6864 ( = 39) and KCTC 19485 ( = MSW-24) yielded values of 32.5 ± 2 % and 27.32 %, respectively. Based on the data from phylogenetic and polyphasic taxonomic analyses, strain JC268 represents a novel species of the genus for which the name sp. nov., is proposed. The type strain of is JC268 ( = KCTC 29672 = NBRC 110608). Our data suggest that should be reclassified within the genus . Thus, a reclassification is proposed for , the type and only species of the genus , as comb. nov., which implies the emendation of the description of the genus .
