Abstract

Eleven strains that formed symbiotic root nodules on , designated previously as genospecies II, were identified as a new lineage of () that could be differentiated from all previously recognized species of the genus by using 16S rRNA gene sequences (<97.8 % similarity), DNA–DNA hybridization (<45 %), , , , , , and gene sequences, fatty acid profiles (C 7, 35 %;11-methyl C 7, 30 %) and numerical taxonomy. These strains are therefore considered to represent a novel species, for which the name sp. nov. is proposed, with isolate CCNWXJ12-2 (=ACCC 15461=HAMBI 3019) as the type strain.
