Abstract

A bacterium designated strain Liujia-146 was isolated in the Tainan area of southern Taiwan from root nodules of the aquatic legume . 16S rRNA gene sequence analysis indicated that strain Liujia-146 was highly similar to VKM B-1479 (97.8 %) and JLW10 (95.5 %) and belonged to the order in the . On the basis of phylogenetic analysis, DNA–DNA hybridization data, physiological and biochemical characteristics and fatty acid compositions, the organism was shown to belong to the genus whilst representing a novel species within this genus. We propose to classify strain Liujia-146 (=BCRC 17578=LMG 23578) as the type strain of sp. nov.
