Abstract

A Gram-negative, rod-shaped, non-motile, non-spore-forming, pink-pigmented bacterium, SV97, was isolated from a wetland soil near Ny-Ålesund, Svalbard Islands, Norway (78° N). On the basis of 16S rRNA gene sequence similarity, strain SV97 was shown to belong to the and was highly related to a number of non-characterized strains with GenBank accession nos AJ458507 and AJ458502 (100 %) and AF177299, AJ458510, AJ458467, AJ458471, AJ431384, AJ458475, AJ458484, AJ458501 and AJ458466 (99 %). The most closely related type strains were OBBP (97·2 %) and IMET 10491 (97 %). The closest related recognized species within the genus was NCIMB 11126 (96·0 % similarity). Chemotaxonomic and phenotypic data (C 8 as the major fatty acid, non-motile, no rosette formation) supported the affiliation of strain SV97 to the genus . The results of DNA–DNA hybridization and physiological and biochemical tests allowed genotypic and phenotypic differentiation of strain SV97 from the two recognized species. Strain SV97 therefore represents a novel species, for which the name sp. nov. is proposed, with the type strain SV97 (=DSM 17261=ATCC BAA-1196).
