Abstract

A mesophilic, acidophilic, spore-forming bacterium, strain 105-2, was isolated from an acidic peat bog in Wisconsin, USA. Strain 105-2 has 16S rRNA gene sequence similarity to DSM 10599 and DSM 9356 of 97·4 and 97·8 %, respectively. The primary lipoquinone is MK-7 and the major fatty acids are 15 : 0 iso, 15 : 0 anteiso and 17 : 0 anteiso. The predominant polar lipids were found to be diphosphatidylglycerol, phosphatidylglycerol, phosphatidylethanolamine and a glycolipid. The DNA G+C content was found to be 43·2 mol%. The phenotypic, chemotaxonomic and molecular analyses identified strain 105-2 as a novel species, for which the name is proposed. The type strain is 105-2 (=DSM 14745=ATCC BAA-366=NRRL B-23453).
