Abstract

Two isolates, designated CadH11 and Cad448, representing uncultured purple sulfur bacterial populations H and 448, respectively, in the chemocline of Lake Cadagno, a crenogenic meromictic lake in Switzerland, were obtained using enrichment and isolation conditions that resembled those used for cultured members of the genus . Phenotypic, genotypic and phylogenetic analyses of these isolates confirmed their assignment to the genus . However, 16S rRNA gene sequence similarities of 98.2 % between CadH11 and Cad448, and similarities of 97.7 and 98.5 %, respectively, with their closest cultured relative DSM 215, as well as differences in DNA G+C content and carbon source utilization suggested that the isolates belonged to two distinct species. DNA–DNA hybridization of CadH11 and Cad448 with DSM 215 showed relatedness values of 46.4 and 60.8 %, respectively; the relatedness value between CadH11 and Cad448 was 59.2 %. Based on this evidence, strains CadH11 and Cad448 represent two novel species within the genus , for which the names sp. nov. and sp. nov. are proposed, respectively. The type strains of sp. nov. and sp. nov. are CadH11 ( = JCM 15112  = KCTC 5954) and Cad448 ( = JCM 15111  = KCTC 15001), respectively.
