Abstract

A Gram-stain-negative, non-spore-forming, rod-shaped bacterial strain, hg, resembling members of the genus , was isolated from soil, and subjected to a taxonomic study using a polyphasic approach. Strain hg grew optimally at pH 7.0 and 30 °C in the presence of 1 % (w/v) NaCl. It contained MK-6 as the predominant menaquinone and iso-C and iso-C 3-OH as the major fatty acids. The DNA G+C content was 34 mol%. Phylogenetic analysis based on 16S rRNA gene sequences indicated that strain hg belonged to the genus . Levels of 16S rRNA gene sequence similarity between strain hg and the type strains of species of the genus were below 94.7 %. Strain hg differed from phylogenetically related species of the genus in several phenotypic characteristics. On the basis of phenotypic and phylogenetic distinctiveness, strain hg ( = CCTCC AB 2012099 = KACC 16855) was classified in the genus as the type strain of a novel species, for which the name sp. nov. is proposed.
