Abstract

A polyphasic taxonomic study including DNA–DNA reassociation experiments and an extensive biochemical characterization was performed on 14 isolates from moss gametophytes of nutrient-poor plant communities on the southern Baltic Sea coast in northern Germany. The strains were classified within two novel species, for which the names sp. nov. and sp. nov. are proposed. The former species also includes isolates from grassland and agricultural soil collected in previous studies. Strains 1S18 (=LMG 23644 =CCUG 52993) and A3 (=LMG 23650 =CCUG 53006) are the proposed type strains. They were isolated from and , respectively, growing in the ‘Ribnitzer Großes Moor’ nature reserve (Mecklenburg-Pommern, Germany). All moss isolates of both novel species showed antifungal activity against phytopathogens as well as plant-growth-promoting properties.
