Abstract

Four Gram-negative, motile, rod-shaped bacterial strains were isolated from soil samples collected from south-east China. A taxonomic study including phylogenetic analysis based on 16S rRNA gene sequences and phenotypic characteristics was performed. DNA G+C contents of the four strains were 63–66 mol%. Their predominant ubiquinone was Q-8. The fatty acid profiles contained C 7 (36·9–54·7 %) and C (22·8–25·5 %) as the major components. Based on their phenotypic characteristics, phylogenetic position as determined by 16S rRNA gene sequence analysis and DNA–DNA hybridization results, the four isolates are considered to represent four novel species of the genus , for which the names sp. nov. (type strain 16=CCTCC AB 204070=KCTC 12342), sp. nov. (type strain 45=CCTCC AB 204071=KCTC 12343), sp. nov. (type strain 76=CCTCC AB 204072=KCTC 12344) and sp. nov. (type strain 101=CCTCC AB 204073=KCTC 12345) are proposed.
