Abstract

Gram-positive, rod-shaped, motile lactic acid bacteria (strains NRIC 0603, NRIC 0604, NRIC 0605 and NRIC 0606) were isolated from shochu mashes using an enrichment culture approach. These strains clustered in the group and were closely related to and on the basis of 16S rRNA gene sequence similarity. Levels of DNA–DNA relatedness revealed genotypic separation of the four isolates from the above two species. The isolates are therefore considered to represent a novel species, for which the name is proposed. The type strain is NRIC 0604 (=JCM 12392=DSM 16230).
