Abstract

A Gram-negative bacterium, designated strain CW 186, was isolated from forest soil in Anhui province, China. Cells of strain CW 186 were strictly aerobic, non-motile and rod-shaped. The strain grew optimally at 25–30 °C and pH 6.0–8.0. The major cellular fatty acids of strain CW 186 were iso-C (32.2 %), iso-C 3-OH (9.8 %) and summed feature 3 (iso-C 2-OH and/or C 7; 33.7 %). The predominant isoprenoid quinone was MK-7. The G+C content of the genomic DNA was 36.3 mol%. Phylogenetic analysis using 16S rRNA gene sequences showed that strain CW 186 formed a monophyletic cluster with LMG 23402, LMG 23401, DSM 18850, ATCC 33299 and ATCC 33861. Sequence similarities were less than 94 % (the maximal similarity was about 93.9 % to LMG 23401) to species with validly published names. A polyphasic taxonomic study including chemotaxonomic and phylogenetic analyses demonstrated that strain CW 186 should be classified as representing a novel species of the genus , for which the name sp. nov. is proposed. The type strain is CW 186 (=KCTC 22209=CCTCC AB 207197).
