Abstract

A novel Gram-stain-negative, facultatively anaerobic, non-motile and coccus-shaped bacterium, strain C7, was isolated from the gut of the butterfly . Strain C7 grew optimally at 20–25 °C, at pH 7–8 and with 1 % (w/v) NaCl. The strain was negative for oxidase activity but positive for catalase activity. The 16S rRNA gene sequences of strain C7 and CN3 shared 96.8 % similarity. The major fatty acids identified were C, C, Cω7 and summed feature 2 (comprising C 3-OH/iso-C). The major respiratory quinone was ubiquinone-8 (Q-8). The polar lipids of strain C7 were phosphatidylethanolamine, phosphatidylglycerol, an unidentified phospholipid and two unidentified aminophospholipids. The G+C content of the genomic DNA extracted from strain C7 was 32.1 mol%. Taken together, the phenotypic, genotypic and phylogenetic analyses indicate that strain C7 represents a novel species of the genus , for which the name sp. nov. is proposed. The type strain is C7 ( = KACC 16544 = JCM 18050). An emended description of the genus is provided.
