Abstract

The taxonomic position of a soil isolate, strain 276, was established using a polyphasic approach. The organism showed a range of chemical and morphological properties consistent with its classification in the genus . An almost complete 16S rRNA gene sequence determined for the strain was aligned with corresponding sequences of representatives of the genus and related taxa using three tree-making algorithms. The organism formed a distinct phyletic line within the evolutionary radiation occupied by the genus and was most closely related to the type strain of . However, the two strains shared a low DNA–DNA relatedness value and were readily distinguished using a combination of phenotypic properties. The combined genotypic and phenotypic data show that strain 276 should be assigned to the genus as a novel species. The name proposed for this new taxon is sp. nov. The type strain is 276 (=CGMCC 4.1860=JCM 12160).
