Abstract

One coccal strain, designated 0905C15, was isolated from fresh cummingcordia, which is the main ingredient of pobuzihi (fermented cummingcordia), a traditional fermented food in Taiwan. 16S rRNA gene sequencing results showed that strain 0905C15 had 98.22–98.82 % sequence similarity to that of the type strains of four subspecies ( subsp. BCRC 12312, subsp. BCRC 12586, subsp. BCRC 80474 and subsp. BCRC 80475). Comparison of two housekeeping genes, and , revealed that strain 0905C15 was well separated from the reference strains of the genus . DNA–DNA hybridization studies indicated that strain 0905C15 had low DNA relatedness to the four subspecies (9.7–15.24 %). The DNA G+C content of strain 0905C15 was 39.6 mol %. Based on the evidence, strain 0905C15 represents a novel species of the genus , for which the name sp. nov. is proposed. The type strain is 0905C15 ( = NBRC 109049 = BCRC 80460).
