Abstract

Two strains were isolated from tuff, a volcanic rock that forms the walls of the Roman Catacombs of Saint Callixtus in Rome, Italy. A polyphasic approach using nutritional and physiological tests, reactions to antibiotics, fatty acid profiles, DNA base ratios, DNA–DNA reassociation and 16S rRNA gene sequence comparisons showed that the two isolates belong to a novel species within the genus . The species sp. nov. is proposed. The type strain is CSC19 (=CECT 5680=LMG 22520).
