Abstract

A facultatively anaerobic, Gram-stain-negative, non-motile and rod-shaped bacterium, strain N-10, was isolated from the gut of the termite . Strain N-10 was closely related to JCM 16698 according to 16S rRNA gene sequence similarity analysis (98 %) and DNA–DNA relatedness value (≤61.3 %). The optimum growth temperature of strain N-10 was 30 °C, which was distinct from that (37 °C) of known species of the genus . Growth of strain N-10 was inhibited on medium containing 5 or 20 % bile, unlike other species of the genus . In addition, acid production in the API 20A system and enzymic reactions in the Rapid ID 32A system of strain N-10 differed from those of other species of the genus . Based on these characteristics, strain N-10 represents a novel species of the genus , for which the name sp. nov. is proposed. The type strain is N-10 ( = JCM 30204 = CCUG 66188).
