Abstract

Strain CMS 21w was isolated from a cyanobacterial mat sample taken from a pond located in the McMurdo Dry Valleys, Antarctica. Based on its phenotypic, chemotaxonomic and phylogenetic properties, strain CMS 21w was identified as a member of the genus . At the 16S rRNA gene level, CMS 21w exhibited about 93–96 % similarity to all reported species of and exhibited a maximum similarity of 96 % to both and . Based on more than 3 % difference at the 16S rRNA gene sequence level and the presence of distinct differences with respect to phenotypic, biochemical and chemotaxonomic features, strain CMS 21w (=MTCC 4670=DSM 15428=CIP 107784) is proposed as the type strain of a novel species of , sp. nov.
