Abstract

(type strain DSM 7218=ATCC 19372=NCIMB 9041) was isolated from salted beans and was first described by Hof in 1935. 16S rRNA gene sequence comparisons demonstrated its close relatedness (>97–99 %) to species of the genus . A recent isolate from salted herrings originating from the Baltic Sea, strain 3b, also clustered phylogenetically within this genus. Phenotypic features, substrate utilization, fatty acid profile, quinone and polar lipid composition and whole-cell protein patterns supported the similarity of strain 3b to DSM 7218 and confirmed its relatedness to members of the genus . The G+C content of the DNA from strain 3b and DSM 7218 was 60.4 and 60.7 mol%, respectively. DNA–DNA hybridization data showed that the two strains represent the same species, but are separated from , the closest species from a phylogenetic point of view. Therefore, the reclassification of as comb. nov. (type strain DSM 7218=ATCC 19372=NCIMB 9041) is proposed. The species description has been emended considering the new data on both the type strain and strain 3b.
