Abstract

Three Gram-staining-positive, strictly aerobic, motile, catalase-positive, endospore-forming rods, designated WCC 4582, WCC 4581 and WCC 4583, were isolated from two different food sources and a pharmaceuticals production site. The three isolates were highly similar in their 16S rRNA gene sequences (100 % similarity) and sequences (99.2–100 % similarity), Fourier-transform infrared spectroscopic fingerprints and other features tested. The isolates were most closely related to ; the isolates and the type strain of shared 97.6 % and 89.6 % 16S rRNA gene and sequence similarities, respectively. The organisms grew optimally at 30 °C, at pH 7 and in the presence of 0.5 % (w/v) NaCl. The cell-wall peptidoglycan of WCC 4582 contained -diaminopimelic acid (A1γ) and the genomic DNA G+C content was 36.4 mol%. DNA–DNA relatedness between strain WCC 4582 and NRRL B-59162 was 17 %. The three isolates are considered to represent a novel species of the genus , for which the name sp. nov. is proposed. The type strain is WCC 4582 ( = DSM 23667 = CCUG 59877 = LMG 25855).
