Abstract

A novel strictly aerobic, heterotrophic, mesophilic bacterium, strain Mb8, was isolated from soil in Sapporo City, Hokkaido, Japan. The G+C content of strain Mb8 was 66·0 mol%. It had mycolic acids with 44–52 carbon atoms and C16 : 0 and C18 : 1 (9) as the major fatty acids. The major isoprenoid quinone was MK-8(H). The cell wall contained -diaminopimelic acid, arabinose and galactose. 16S rDNA, chemotaxonomic and morphological data indicated that this strain clearly belonged to the genus . Based on phenotypic properties and DNA–DNA hybridization data, strain Mb8 (=JCM 11308=NCIMB 13903) has been assigned to the genus as the type strain of sp. nov.
