Abstract

Phylogenetic analysis of ‘’ NBRC 14752 and strain NBRC 15120, based on 16S rRNA gene sequences, revealed that these organisms are related to members of the genus . These organisms contained glutamic acid, alanine and -diaminopimelic acid as cell-wall amino acids and the menaquinones MK-9(H), MK-9(H) and MK-9(H). The chemotaxonomic characteristics of the strains were consistent with those of the genus . However, DNA–DNA hybridization and phenotypic characteristics revealed that the strains differed from the recognized species of the genus . Therefore, we propose that ‘’ NBRC 14752 and strain NBRC 15120 be reclassified in the genus as a novel species, sp. nov. (type strain NBRC 14752=DSM 44434).
