Abstract

An actinomycete strain, NAR01, was isolated from root nodules of a plant. The 16S rRNA gene sequence of strain NAR01 showed most similarity to the type strains of (98.94 %) and (98.4 %). The chemotaxonomic results obtained confirmed the taxonomic position of the isolate within the genus , and revealed differences at the species level. Physiological and biochemical tests showed that strain NAR01 could be clearly distinguished from its closest phylogenetic neighbours, while DNA–DNA hybridization results indicated that the isolate represents a novel species. On the basis of these results, strain NAR01 (=DSM 44875=LMG 23557) is proposed as the type strain of the novel species sp. nov.
