Abstract

The taxonomic positions of three -like strains isolated from hyperarid soils of the Atacama Desert, Chile, were established by using a polyphasic approach. The organisms had chemical and morphological properties consistent with their classification in the genus . They formed a distinct subclade in the 16S rRNA gene clade and were most closely related to the type strain of . DNA–DNA relatedness data showed that each of the isolates and DSM 45081 belong to distinct genomic species. The new isolates and the type strains of recognized species were readily distinguished based on a number of phenotypic properties. A combination of the genotypic and phenotypic data showed that the three isolates represent three novel species of the genus . The names proposed for these taxa are sp. nov. (type strain C61 =CGMCC 4.5536 =NRRL B-24706), sp. nov. (type strain C68 =CGMCC 4.5535 =NRRL B-24707) and sp. nov. (type strain C81 =CGMCC 4.5537 =NRRL B-24708).
