A light-pink-coloured bacterium, designated strain 5416T-32, was isolated from an air sample in Korea. Cells of the strain were strictly aerobic, Gram-negative, motile (single polar or subpolar flagellum) and rod-shaped. Optimal growth occurred at 25–30 °C and at pH 6.0–7.0. The major quinones were Q-10 and Q-8. The major fatty acids were C 7 (53.8 %) and C (15.9 %). The G+C content of the genomic DNA was 65.0 mol%. Phylogenetic analysis based on 16S rRNA gene sequences revealed that strain 5416T-32 was most closely related to , with a similarity of 96.2 %, but relatively low sequence similarities (<92 %) were found with respect to other species with validly published names held in GenBank. Phenotypic and genotypic analyses indicated that strain 5416T-32 could not be assigned to any recognized species. Therefore strain 5416T-32 represents a novel species of the genus , for which the name sp. nov. is proposed. The type strain is 5416T-32 (=KACC 11604=DSM 18479).
