Abstract

A Gram-negative, rod-shaped, non-spore-forming bacterium (strain AR107) was isolated from the drinking water distribution system of Seville (Spain). A polyphasic taxonomic study of the isolate resulted in its identification as a member of the genus . On the basis of 16S rRNA gene sequence comparisons, strain AR107 was shown to belong to the phylum , being related to members of the genus . It showed 95.2 % sequence similarity with respect to the type strains of and , and 94.1 % similarity with respect to the type strain of . The predominant fatty acids were iso-C, iso-C 3-OH and summed feature 3 (iso-C 2-OH and/or C 7), which supports the affiliation of strain AR107 to the genus . The DNA G+C content of this strain was 38 mol%. On the basis of the phenotypic, phylogenetic and genotypic results, strain AR107 represents a novel species, for which the name sp. nov. is proposed. The type strain is AR107 (=CCM 7347=CECT 7114=JCM 13454).
