Abstract

Seventeen strains of lespedeza rhizobia, a previously defined novel group, were further characterized by comparison with phylogenetically related species using a polyphasic approach, including SDS-PAGE of whole-cell proteins, PCR-based restriction fragment length polymorphism analysis of ribosomal intergenic spacer sequences, determination of DNA G+C contents, DNA–DNA hybridization and analysis of phenotypic features. Based on data obtained in the present and previous studies, a novel species, sp. nov., is proposed for these strains. The type strain of is CCBAU 41251 (=LMG 24208=HAMBI 2971). Strain CCBAU 41251 could form ineffective nodules on in addition to its original host .
