Abstract

A Gram-positive, non-spore-forming bacterium (GW39-1573) was isolated from soil of the Spanish island of Tenerife. 16S rRNA gene sequence similarity studies showed that strain GW39-1573 belonged to the genus and was most closely related to (98·0 %), (97·3 %), (97·5 %), (97·2 %) and (97·0 %). Strain GW39-1573 could be distinguished from all other validly described species by sequence similarity values of less than 97 %. Chemotaxonomic data [major menaquinone: MK-8(H); major polar lipids: diphosphatidylglycerol, phosphatidylglycerol, phosphatidylethanolamine, phosphatidylinositol, phosphatidylinositol mannoside and an unknown glycolipid and an unknown phospholipid; major fatty acids: C, C 9 and 10 methyl C] and the presence of mycolic acids supported the affiliation of strain GW39-1573 to the genus . The results of DNA–DNA hybridizations and physiological and biochemical tests allowed genotypic and phenotypic differentiation of strain GW39-1573 from those related species that showed 16S rRNA gene sequence similarity values of greater than 97 %. Strain GW39-1573 merits species status, and the name is proposed with the type strain GW39-1573 (=DSM 44704=CIP 107929).
