Abstract

A pink-pigmented, facultatively methylotrophic bacterium, strain 35a, was isolated from the leaves of . Cells of strain 35a were Gram-reaction-negative, motile, non-spore-forming rods. The highest 16S rRNA gene pairwise sequence similarities for strain 35a were found with the strains of 5317S-33 (96.7 %), ‘’ YIM 48816 (96.6 %) and S2R03-9 (96.3 %). 16S rRNA gene sequence similarities with the type strains of all other recognized species of the genus were below 96 %. Major cellular fatty acids were Cω7, C and C. The results of DNA–DNA hybridization experiments, analysis of gene sequences, fatty acid profiles, whole-cell MALDI-TOF/MS spectral pattern analysis, and physiological and biochemical tests allowed genotypic and phenotypic differentiation of strain 35a from its nearest phylogenetic neighbours. Strain 35a is therefore considered to represent a novel species within the genus , for which the name sp. nov. is proposed. The type strain is 35a ( = DSM 24028 = NBRC 107715).
