Abstract

Fourteen strains were isolated from nitrogen-fixing nodules on the roots of plants of the genus growing in Taiwan, Brazil and Venezuela. On the basis of 16S rRNA gene sequence similarities, all of the strains were previously shown to be closely related to each other and to belong to the genus . A polyphasic approach, including DNA–DNA reassociation, whole-cell protein analysis, fatty acid methyl ester analysis and extensive biochemical characterization, was used to clarify the taxonomic position of these strains: all 14 strains were classified as representing a novel species, for which the name sp. nov. is proposed. The type strain, PAS44 (=LMG 23256 =BCRC 17516), was isolated from nodules in Taiwan.
