Abstract

A Gram-negative, rod-shaped, non-spore-forming bacteria was isolated from a nitrifying inoculum. On the basis of 16S rRNA gene sequence similarity, this strain, designated LMG 22951, was shown to belong to the ‘’ and to be related to (97·4 %) and (97·0 %). The results of DNA–DNA hybridization, analysis of fatty acid composition, SDS-PAGE, physiological and biochemical tests allowed genotypic and phenotypic differentiation of LMG 22951 from the two recognized species. LMG 22951 therefore represents a novel species within this genus, for which the name is proposed. The type strain is LMG 22951 (=DSM 17137).
