Abstract

Ten Gram-positive, aerobic bacterial strains with coccoid cells occurring singly, in pairs, tetrads and small aggregates were isolated from the surface of marble and calcareous stones. The peptidoglycan contained -diaminopimelic acid as the diagnostic diamino acid. The major menaquinone was MK-9(H). The cellular fatty acid pattern consisted mainly of iso-branched chain components. According to their phylogenetic position, the organisms are members of the family , clustering close to DSM 4725. Based on a combination of phenotypic, chemotaxonomic and genotypic characteristics, strain BC444 and seven relatives group apart from strains BC412 (=DSM 44517) and BC521 (=DSM 44518), which themselves form two individual lineages. DNA–DNA reassociation studies revealed that members of the three lineages were only remotely related to s DSM 4725; as the strain-rich cluster containing BC444 shared low DNA similarity values with strains BC412 and BC521, it will be described as a novel species of , for which the name sp. nov. is proposed. The type strain is BC444 (=DSM 44509=NRRL 24246).
