Abstract

A Gram-stain-positive, non-endospore-forming actinobacterium (ARP1) was isolated from the phyllosphere of . On the basis of 16S rRNA gene sequence phylogeny strain ARP1 was placed into the genus and the closest related species were (98.5 % 16S rRNA gene sequence similarity), (98.5 %), (98.3 %) and (98.2 %). Genome-based comparison indicated a clear distinction to the type strains of those species with pairwise average nucleotide identities (ANI) between 76.4–78.4 %. The quinone system of strain ARP1 consisted predominantly of menaquinones MK-9(H), MK-7(H) and MK-8(H), and the polar lipid profile contained the major compound diphosphatidylglycerol, and moderate amounts of phosphatidylethanolamine, phosphatidylglycerol and numerous unidentified lipids. Mycolic acids were present. These chemotaxonomic traits and the major fatty acids, which were Cω7, C C Cω9 and tuberculostearic acid supported the affiliation of strain ARP1 to the genus . Genotypic, physiological and biochemical testing revealed clear differences of strain ARP1 to the most closely related species of the genus . Therefore strain ARP1 represents a novel species of this genus, for which the name sp. nov. is proposed. The type strain is ARP1 (=DSM 46872=LMG 28679).
