Abstract

Three unknown Gram-stain-positive, catalase-negative, facultatively anaerobic and coccus-shaped strains of bacteria were isolated from the digestive tracts of wasps (). Analysis of 16S rRNA gene sequences revealed that these strains had identical sequences and showed that , with 96.2 % sequence similarity, was the closest phylogenetic neighbour. Further analyses based on and gene sequences of representatives of the family and genotypic and phenotypic characterization using (GTG)-PCR fingerprintings, RI ribotyping, DNA G+C content, whole-cell protein profiling, cellular fatty acid profiles analysis and extensive biotyping confirmed that the investigated strains were representatives of a novel bacterial species within the genus for which the name sp. nov. is proposed. The type strain is VOSTP2 ( = DSM 24756 = CCM 7946).
