Abstract

A Gram-negative, slightly curved rod-shaped bacterium, designated strain KMY02, was isolated from a forest soil in Daejeon, South Korea. On the basis of 16S rRNA gene sequence similarity, strain KMY02 was shown to belong to the family of the , and to be related most closely to LMG 20598 (98·7 %), LMG 18531 (98·0 %) and LMG 21445 (97·4 %). Its phylogenetic distance from all recognized species within the genus was less than 97 %. Chemotaxonomic data [Q-8 as the major ubiquinone; C, C cyclo, summed feature 7 (C 7/9/12) and C as the major fatty acids] supported the affiliation of strain KMY02 to the genus . The results of DNA–DNA hybridization experiments and physiological and biochemical tests allowed genotypic and phenotypic differentiation of the strain from recognized species. Therefore, KMY02 (=KCTC 12388=NBRC 100964) represents the type strain of a novel species, for which the name sp. nov. is proposed.
