Abstract

An anaerobic, halorespiring bacterium (strain PCE-M2=DSM 13726=ATCC BAA-583) able to reduce tetrachloroethene to -dichloroethene was isolated from an anaerobic soil polluted with chlorinated aliphatic compounds. The isolate is assigned to the genus as a novel species, sp. nov. Furthermore, on the basis of all available data, a related organism, DSM 12446, is reclassified to the genus as comb. nov.
