Abstract

A yellow-pigmented bacterial strain (CC-H3-2), isolated from the rhizosphere of L. (garden lettuce) in Taiwan, was investigated using a polyphasic taxonomic approach. The cells were Gram-negative, rod-shaped and non-spore-forming. Phylogenetic analyses using the 16S rRNA gene sequence of the isolate indicated that the organism belongs to the genus , with the highest sequence similarity to the type strains of (97·7 %), (97·5 %), (97·2 %) and (97·2 %). The major whole-cell fatty acids were iso-C (52·2 %) and iso-C 3-OH. DNA–DNA hybridization experiments revealed levels of only 27·4 % to , 27·1 % to , 14·1 % to and 7·8 % to . DNA–DNA relatedness and biochemical and chemotaxonomic properties demonstrate that strain CC-H3-2 represents a novel species, for which the name sp. nov. is proposed. The type strain is CC-H3-2 (=CCUG 49271=CIP 108367).
