Abstract

The taxonomic position of a strain isolated from an extreme hyper-arid soil sample collected from the Atacama Desert was determined using a polyphasic approach. The strain, isolate C60, had chemical and morphological features typical of members of the genus and formed a distinct phyletic line in the 16S rRNA gene tree, together with the type strain of The two strains were distinguished readily using a combination of phenotypic properties and by a DNA–DNA relatedness value of 23.17 (±0.95) %. On the basis of these genotypic and phenotypic data, it is proposed that isolate C60 ( = CGMCC 4.7018 = KACC 15492) be classified in the genus as sp. nov.
