Abstract

A novel Gram-positive bacterium, strain A35, was isolated from coastal soil at Chiba, Japan, and was identified as a member of the genus on the basis of phenotypic and phylogenetic analyses. The bacterium was found to be a facultatively anaerobic and endospore-forming rod. The predominant menaquinone was MK-7, the major cellular fatty acid was anteiso-C and the DNA G+C content was 48.1 mol%. The levels of 16S rRNA gene sequence similarity between strain A35 and species with validly published names were less than 94 %. Strain A35 was clearly distinguishable from reference species for the genus . Therefore, on the basis of these data, a novel species of the genus , sp. nov., is proposed. The type strain is A35 (=IAM 15291=CCTCC AB206026).
