Abstract

Strains originally identified phenotypically as members of the species were subjected to a more detailed classification employing 16S rRNA gene sequence analysis, DNA–DNA hybridization, determination of the DNA base composition and phenotypic characterization. The quinone system, consisting of the predominant compound ubiquinone Q-8 and minor amounts of menaquinone MK-8, the major components of the polar lipid profile, as well as the polyamine pattern, with putrescine as the major compound, supported the assignment of the strains to the genus . Based on DNA–DNA relatedness, a specific 16S rRNA gene sequence type, absence of melibiose fermentation and a polar lipid profile lacking phosphatidylmonomethylethanolamine and two aminolipids, the strains were identified as members of a novel species for which the name Y sp. nov. is proposed. The type strain of sp. nov. is strain Y228 (=CCUG 52882=LMG 23763).
