Abstract

A mesophilic bacterium, designated strain YIM 31327, was isolated from a forest soil sample collected from Yunnan Province, China, and was then investigated using a polyphasic approach. The strain grew optimally at 28–30 °C and pH 7·2. The cells were Gram-negative, short, rod-shaped, motile and non-spore-forming with flagella. The major ubiquinone was Q-8 and the cellular fatty acids were C and C. The DNA G+C content of strain YIM 31327 was 62·8 mol%. Phylogenetic analysis revealed that strain YIM 31327 was a member of the -, being most closely related to , with which it exhibited less than 96 % 16S rRNA gene sequence similarity. On the basis of the phenotypic and genotypic differences between strain YIM 31327 and , a novel species, sp. nov., is proposed, with YIM 31327 (=CIP 108077=KCTC 12193) as the type strain.
