Abstract

As part of an undergraduate microbiology course, a yellow–orange pigmented, Gram-staining negative, rod-shaped, non-motile bacterial strain, designated CTM, was isolated from a creek in North-central Pennsylvania during the winter of 2006. The 16S rRNA gene sequence of the strain showed ~97 % similarity to that of PSD1-4 and JS6-6, while the protein-coding gene sequence of strain CTM showed <87 % similarity to those of its two closest relatives. Using a polyphasic approach, strain CTM was characterized and compared to these and other closely related species of the genus . Strain CTM was similar to other strains of the genus in that it contained MK-6 as its major respiratory quinone, produced flexirubin-type pigments, oxidase and catalase, hydrolysed DNA, gelatin and aesculin and contained the fatty acids iso-C, iso-Cω9, iso-C 3-OH and summed feature 3 (Cω6, Cω7 and/or iso-C 2-OH). Based on the results of this study, strain CTM represents a novel species of the genus , for which the name sp. nov. is proposed. The type strain is CTM ( = ATCC BAA-1782  = CCUG 57707  = JCM 15960  = DSM 22249  = KCTC 23267).
