Abstract

A Gram-positive, aerobic, non-motile strain, H2.16B, isolated from the midgut of the mosquito was investigated using a polyphasic approach. On the basis of 16S rRNA gene sequence similarity studies, strain H2.16B was shown to belong to the genus , being most closely related to (98·3 %), (98·5 %) and (98·5 %). Chemotaxonomic data (-diaminopimelic acid as the diagnostic diamino acid in the cell wall and major fatty acids of iso-C, C 8 and C) supported the allocation of the strain to the genus . The results of DNA–DNA hybridization and physiological and biochemical tests allowed the genotypic and phenotypic differentiation of strain H2.16B from closely related species. Thus, H2.16B represents a novel species of the genus , for which the name sp. nov. is proposed. The type strain is H2.16B (=CCUG 49715=CIP 108728).
