Abstract

Strain CCM 2783, previously classified as representing , was subjected to a polyphasic taxonomic study. 16S rRNA gene sequence analysis and chemotaxonomic characteristics such as peptidoglycan type A3 Lys–Ala, major menaquinone MK-9(H) and fatty acid composition confirmed assignment of the strain to the genus . The results of phylogenetic analysis, DNA–DNA relatedness experiments and physiological and chemotaxonomic characteristics indicate that CCM 2783 differs from its nearest phylogenetic relative and from other recognized species. Therefore, a novel species, sp. nov., is proposed with the type strain CCM 2783 (=DSM 16005).
