Abstract

A yellow-pigmented bacterial strain, designated RIB1-6, was isolated from a freshwater spring in Taiwan. Strain RIB1-6 was aerobic, Gram-negative, rod-shaped, non-motile and non-spore-forming. Growth occurred at 10–37 °C, at pH 7–8 and with 0–1 % (w/v) NaCl. Phylogenetic analyses based on 16S rRNA gene sequences showed that strain RIB1-6 belonged to the genus and its two closest neighbours were ATCC 13524 and DY (16S rRNA gene sequence similarity 97.4 % and 93.5 %, respectively). Strain RIB1-6 contained iso-C (33.4 %), iso-C 3-OH (18.2 %), summed feature 3 (iso-C 2-OH and/or C 7; 14.7 %) and iso-C (11.5 %) as the predominant fatty acids. The major isoprenoid quinone was MK-7. The DNA G+C content of strain RIB1-6 was 47.3 mol%. On the basis of the genotypic and phenotypic data, strain RIB1-6 represents a novel species in the genus for which the name sp. nov. is proposed. The type strain is RIB1-6 (=BCRC 17941=LMG 24825).
