Abstract

Seven strains of symbiotic bacteria from root nodules of local races of Bambara groundnut () and peanuts () grown on subsistence farmers' fields in the Kavango region, Namibia, were previously characterized and identified as a novel group within the genus . To corroborate their taxonomic status, these strains were further characterized using a polyphasic approach. All strains possessed identical 16S rRNA gene sequences with CCBAU 10071 being the most closely related type strain in the 16S rRNA gene phylogenetic analysis, and CCBAU 15774 in the ITS sequence analysis. Phylogenetic analysis of concatenated placed the strains in a highly supported lineage distinct from named species of the genus , most closely related to CCBAU 10071. The species status was validated by results of DNA–DNA hybridization. Phylogenetic analysis of genes placed the novel strains in a group with of ‘’ CCBAU 051107 that also nodulates peanuts. The combination of phenotypic characteristics from several tests including carbon source utilization and antibiotic resistance could be used to differentiate representative strains from recognized species of the genus . Novel strain 58 2-1 induced effective nodules on and , and some strains on Based on the data presented, we conclude that our strains represent a novel species for which the name sp. nov. is proposed, with 58 2-1 [ = DSM 100298 = LMG 28792 = NTCCM0016 (Windhoek)] as the type strain. The DNA G+C content of strain 58 2-1 was 64.7 mol% ( ).
