Abstract

A non-motile, rod-shaped, light-yellow-pigmented bacterium, designated strain WPCB159, was isolated from freshwater samples collected from the Woopo wetland in Korea. The cells were Gram-negative, aerobic and catalase- and oxidase-positive. The major fatty acids were C 7 (34.8 %), iso-C (24.2 %) and C (9.4 %). The DNA G+C content was 44 mol%. A phylogenetic tree based on 16S rRNA gene sequences showed that strain WPCB159 forms a lineage within the genus (family ‘’) and is closely related to HHS 11 (97.8 % sequence similarity) and to other members of the genus (95.2–96.8 % sequence similarity). The phenotypic characteristics and DNA–DNA hybridization relatedness data indicate that strain WPCB159 should be distinguished from HHS 11. On the basis of the evidence presented in this study, strain WPCB159 represents a novel species of the genus , for which the name sp. nov. is proposed. The type strain is WPCB159 (=KCTC 12537=NBRC 101116).
