Abstract

A novel Gram-positive, anaerobic and moderately thermophilic bacterium, strain 50-1 BON, was isolated from an Australian terrestrial oil reservoir. Cells were spore-forming straight rods, motile by peritrichous flagella. The optimum growth conditions were 50 °C, pH 7·5 and 0·1 % NaCl. Strain 50-1 BON fermented arabinose, cellobiose, fructose, galactose, glucose, mannose, sucrose, xylose and yeast extract. Glucose was fermented mainly into lactate, formate, hydrogen and CO. The major end product of pyruvate fermentation was acetate together with H and CO. Thiosulfate, sulfate, elemental sulfur and nitrate were not used as terminal electron acceptors. The DNA G+C content was 55·5 mol%. The closest phylogenetic relative of strain 50-1 BON was (16S rRNA gene sequence similarity of 85·7 %). As strain 50-1 BON was physiologically and phylogenetically different from members of the order ‘’, it is proposed that strain 50-1 BON (=DSM 15567=CIP 107919) be classified as the type strain of a novel species of a new genus, gen. nov., sp. nov.
