Abstract

A Gram-variable, facultatively anaerobic, endospore-forming bacterium was isolated from surface-sterilized seeds of the garden pea and characterized with phenotypic and molecular methods. A PCR with the -specific primer PAEN515F and the 16S rRNA gene sequence indicated that strain C/2 belongs to the genus and is closely related to (94·0 % sequence similarity). Strain C/2 generated a unique phenotypic profile, in particular for the production of acid from substrates. The DNA G+C content (50·8 mol%) and the major fatty acid (anteiso-C) are consistent with the genus . DNA–DNA hybridization distinguished strain C/2 from other phylogenetically related species and, therefore, strain C/2 (=CCM 4839=LMG 23002) is here described as the type strain of a novel species, for which the name sp. nov. is proposed.
