Abstract

The name ‘’ dates back to 2003 when it was suggested for a slowly growing mycobacterium isolated from freshwater angelfish. This name is revived here and the novel species is proposed on the basis of the polyphasic characterization of four strains including the original one. The four strains presented 100 % 16S rRNA gene sequence similarity with but clearly differed from for the milky white aspect of the colonies. The sequence similarity with the type strain of ranged, in eight additionally investigated genetic targets, from 78.9 to 94.3 %, an evident contrast with the close relatedness that emerged at the level of 16S rRNA gene. The average nucleotide identity between the genomes of DSM 44166 and strain 126/5/03 (type strain of the novel species) was 92.92 %, and supported the status of independent species. The confirmation of the name sp. nov. is proposed, with strain 126/5/03 ( = CIP 109313 = DSM 45057) as the type strain.
