Abstract

Strain NRRL B-41902 and three closely related strains were isolated from iceberg lettuce. The strain was found to consist of strictly aerobic, Gram-stain-negative rods that formed cocci in late stationary phase. 16S rRNA gene sequence analysis showed that strain NRRL B-41902 was most closely related to species within the genera , and that a grouping of it and the three other closely related strains was most closely related to the type strain of , which was also confirmed through a phylogenomic analysis. Moreover, DNA–DNA hybridization analysis revealed a substantial amount of genomic divergence (39.1 %) between strain NRRL B-41902 and the type strain of , which is expected if the strains represent distinct species. Further phenotypic analysis revealed that strain NRRL B-41902 was able to utilize a combination of -serine, citraconic acid and citramalic acid, which differentiated it from other, closely related species. Therefore, strain NRRL B-41902 (=CCUG 68785) is proposed as the type strain of a novel species, sp. nov.
