Abstract

A yellow-pigmented, Gram-negative, rod-shaped bacterium (strain CC-YY255) was isolated from compost generated from food waste collected from Kinmen County, Taiwan. 16S rRNA gene sequence analysis indicated that the strain formed a monophyletic branch at the periphery of the evolutionary radiation occupied by the genus ; its closest neighbour was the type strain of (94.4 % sequence similarity). The isolate was distinguished from on the basis of several phenotypic properties. The organism utilized glucose, maltose, gentiobiose, melibiose and turanose and only a few organic acids (acetate, propionate) and amino acids (-alanyl glycine, glycyl -aspartic acid and glycyl -glutamic acid) as substrates. The fatty acid profile was slightly different from that reported for . It is evident from the genotypic, chemotaxonomic and physiological data presented that strain CC-YY255 represents a novel species of the genus , for which the name sp. nov. is proposed. The type strain is CC-YY255 (=CCUG 53595=CIP 109311=BCRC 17598).
