Abstract

A pink-pigmented, facultatively methylotrophic bacterium, strain 23e, was isolated from the leaves of (cudweed). The cells of strain 23e were Gram-reaction negative, motile and non-spore-forming rods. On the basis of 16S rRNA gene sequence similarities, strain 23e was related to ATCC 27886 (97.1 %) and JT1 (97 %), and the phylogenetic similarities to all other species with validly published names were less than 97 %. Major cellular fatty acids were Cω7, C and C. The results of DNA–DNA hybridization, phylogenetic analyses based on 16S rRNA and gene sequences, fatty acid profiles, whole-cell matrix-assisted laser desorption/ionization time of flight/MS analysis, physiological and biochemical tests allowed genotypic and phenotypic differentiation of strain 23e from the phylogenetically closest relatives. We propose that strain 23e represents a novel species within the genus , for which the name sp. nov. is proposed. The type strain is 23e ( = DSM 24027 = NBRC 107716).
