Abstract

A Gram-positive and catalase-negative coccus that formed chains, strain FP15-1, isolated from fermented tea leaves (‘miang’), was studied systematically. The strain was facultatively anaerobic and produced -lactic acid from glucose. Demethylmenaquinone (DMK-7) was the major menaquinone. Straight-chain unsaturated fatty acids C and C were the dominant components. The DNA G+C content was 37.8 mol%. On the basis of 16S rRNA and RNA polymerase subunit () gene sequence analysis, strain FP15-1 was closely related to KCTC 5373, with 99.2 and 93.8 % similarity, respectively. The strain could be clearly distinguished from ATCC 5373 by low DNA–DNA relatedness (≤33.8 %) and phenotypic characteristics. Therefore, this strain represent a novel species of the genus , for which the name sp. nov. is proposed. The type strain is FP15-1 (=KCTC 13133 =NBRC 101868 =NRIC 0105 =TISTR 932 =PCU 277).
