Abstract

A Gram-stain-positive bacterium, designated T14, was isolated from the gut of larvae and was subjected to a taxonomic study. The isolate was rod-shaped, aerobic, non-motile, non-spore-forming and yellow-pigmented. Phylogenetic analysis based on 16S rRNA gene sequence comparison indicated that the isolate is related to the genus . Its closest neighbours were the type strains ‘’ F3-P9 (96.8 % 16S rRNA gene sequence similarity), NAL101 (96.2 %) and DSM 19883 (95.5 %). The DNA G+C content of strain T14 was 69.3 mol%, and DNA–DNA hybridization values with closely related strains were < 32 %. The predominant cellular fatty acids were anteiso-C (49.3 %), iso-C (16.4 %) and anteiso-C (16.8 %). The major polar lipids were aminolipid, diphosphatidylglycerol, phosphatidylglycerol, phospholipid, phosphoglycolipid and unidentified glycolipids. The predominant respiratory quinone was MK-11. Based on these phylogenetic and phenotypic results, strain T14 can be clearly distinguished from all of the recognized species of the genus and is considered to represent a novel species of the genus The name sp. nov. is proposed, with the type strain T14 ( = DSM 28968 = JCM 30245).
