Abstract

A bacterial strain, designated Dant 3-8, isolated from the gut of the termite , was investigated by a polyphasic taxonomic approach. The cells were rod-shaped, Gram-negative, non-pigmented, non-spore-forming and non-fermentative. Phylogenetic analyses using the 16S rRNA gene sequence showed that the strain formed a monophyletic branch towards the periphery of the evolutionary radiation occupied by the genus , its closest neighbours being DSM 50244 (96.4 % sequence similarity), KCTC 12005 (96.0 %) and DSM 7099 (96.2 %). Strain Dant 3-8 was clearly distinguished from all of these strains by using phylogenetic analysis, DNA–DNA hybridization, whole-cell protein profiles, fatty acid composition data and a range of physiological and biochemical characteristics. It is evident from the genotypic and phenotypic data that Dant 3-8 represents a novel species in the genus , for which the name sp. nov. is proposed. The type strain is Dant 3-8 (=BCRC 17576=LMG 23579).
