Abstract

A Gram-stain-positive, non-motile, coccus-shaped bacterium, designated strain C25, was isolated from the soil beneath a decomposing pig carcass in Korea and was characterized using a polyphasic taxonomic approach. Comparative 16S rRNA gene sequence analysis showed that strain C25 belongs to the genus in the family of the 16S rRNA gene sequence analysis showed that strain C25 was closely related to CCUG 39187 (96.5 % similarity) and LMG 8895 (95.8 %). The chemotaxonomic properties of strain C25 were consistent with those of the genus ; the major cellular fatty acids consisted of C, C 9 and C 9, and the cell-wall peptidoglycan type was based on -diaminopimelic acid. The G+C content of the genomic DNA was 44 mol%. On the basis of phylogenetic inference, fatty acid profile, and chemotaxonomic and other phenotypic properties, strain C25 is clearly differentiated from closely related type strains of the genus and represents a novel species in this genus, for which the name sp. nov. is proposed. The type strain is C25 (=KEMB 562-002=JCM 31581).
