Abstract

A pale-pink strain (CC-FR2-10) from the rhizosphere of the sacred tree L. in Taiwan was investigated by using a polyphasic taxonomic approach. The cells were Gram-positive, rod-shaped and non-spore-forming. Phylogenetic analyses using the 16S rRNA gene sequence of the isolate indicated that the organism belongs to the genus , the highest sequence similarities being found with (96·1 %), (94·3 %), (93·2 %), (93·0 %), (92·5 %), (92·4 %) and (90·7 %). The DNA–DNA relatedness with respect to DSM 3963 was 17·9 %. Chemotaxonomic data revealed that strain CC-FR2-10 contains only menaquinone MK-8 as the respiratory quinone, unknown phosphoglycolipids as the predominant polar lipids and 16 : 17, 17 : 18 and 17 : 19 iso as the predominant fatty acids. The biochemical and chemotaxonomic properties demonstrate that strain CC-FR2-10 represents a novel species, for which the name sp. nov. is proposed. The type strain is CC-FR2-10 (=CCUG 53391=CIP 108832).
