Abstract

A bacterial strain (CC-TWGS1-8) isolated from a tar-contaminated soil in Taiwan was studied in a detailed taxonomic study. The cells were Gram-negative, rod-shaped and non-spore-forming. Phylogenetic analyses using the 16S rRNA gene sequence of the strain clearly revealed an affiliation to the genus , the highest sequence similarities being to the type strain of (96·8 %), to (96·8 %) and to (96·4 %). The 16S rRNA gene sequence similarities to all other species were below 96 %. The major whole-cell fatty acids were 15 : 0 iso (35·4 %) and 17 : 0 iso 3OH (22·5 %). DNA–DNA hybridization values and the biochemical and chemotaxonomic properties demonstrate that strain CC-TWGS1-8 represents a novel species, for which the name sp. nov. is proposed. The type strain is CC-TWGS1-8 (=CCUG 50001=CIP 108519).
