Abstract

A Gram-negative, short rod-shaped micro-organism (CC-BB4) was isolated on nutrient agar from soil from Sinshe in Taichung County, Taiwan. Analysis of the 16S rRNA gene sequence demonstrated that this isolate was novel, as it showed <92 % similarity to the sequences of species of the genera , and . The micro-organism did not utilize methylamine or methanol as a substrate, but was able to use several organic acids. The fatty acid profile was different from those reported for the genera , , , , and . On the basis of the 16S rRNA gene sequence analysis, in combination with chemotaxonomic and physiological data, strain CC-BB4 represents a novel genus, for which the name gen. nov. is proposed. The type species is sp. nov., and the type strain of is CC-BB4 (=CCUG 51779=CIP 108932).
