Abstract

Bacterial strain CP183-8 was isolated from biological soil crusts collected in the Colorado Plateau, USA. Cells of this strain were aerobic, non-motile, Gram-negative, psychrotolerant and formed beaded chains in the stationary growth phase. They contained C 5 and C 7 as major fatty acids. 16S rRNA gene sequence analysis assigned the strain to the genus . However, it shared a sequence similarity of only 95·88 % with the type strain of , NS114. Because it also exhibited a significant number of phenotypic and chemotaxonomic differences from , it is described as a novel second species in the genus , with the name sp. nov. The type strain is CP183-8 (=DSM 16708=ATCC BAA-1036).
