Abstract

A Gram-positive, aerobic, non-motile bacterium was isolated from a decayed elm tree. Phylogenetic analysis based on 16S rDNA sequences revealed 99·0 % similarity to . Chemotaxonomic data that were determined for this isolate included cell-wall composition, fatty acid profiles and polar lipids; the results supported the placement of strain XIL11 in the genus . The DNA G+C content was 73 mol%. The results of DNA–DNA hybridization with ATCC 25174, in combination with chemotaxonomic and physiological data, demonstrated that isolate XIL11 should be classified as a novel species. The name sp. nov. is proposed, with strain XIL11 (=LMG 21723=CECT 5729) as the type strain.
