Abstract

Three strains showing highly similar (GTG)-PCR patterns were isolated from a heavily damaged mural painting at the Saint-Catherine chapel (Castle Herberstein, Austria). On the basis of 16S rRNA gene sequence similarity, the strains were attributed to , with (96·7 %), (96·7 %) and (96·6 %) as the closest related species. Chemotaxonomic data [peptidoglycan contains -diaminopimelic acid; mycolic acids absent; MK-8(H) as the major menaquinone; polar lipids phosphatidylglycerol and diphosphatidylglycerol present; anteiso-C and anteiso-C as major fatty acids] supported the affiliation of the strains to the genus . Additional physiological and biochemical tests confirmed the taxonomic position of the strains and allowed phenotypic differentiation from species with validly published names. The isolates from the mural painting, therefore, represent a novel species, for which the name sp. nov. is proposed, with LMG 22061 (=DSM 16132) as the type strain.
