Abstract

Strain Rs-Y01 was isolated from the gut of the wood-feeding subterranean termite . Phylogenetic analysis based on 16S rRNA gene sequence indicated that the strain Rs-Y01 belonged to the genus and was most closely related to JCM 5706 with 98.1 % similarity in the 16S rRNA gene, followed by JCM 16647 (97.2 %). Genomic comparisons of strain Rs-Y01 with JCM 5706were made using the Genome-to-Genome Distance Calculator and average nucleotide identity analysis (values indicated 29.2 and 84.6 %, respectively). Strain Rs-Y01 was a Gram-stain-positive, facultatively anaerobic, non-motile coco-bacilli and formed -lactic acid. The sugar fermentation and enzyme reactions of strain Rs-Y01 differed from those of other species of the genus . The major cellular fatty acids were summed feature 8 (Cω7c/Cω6; 32.0 %), C (29.7 %) and C (18.1 %). Based on these characteristics, strain Rs-Y01 represents a novel species of the genus , for which the name sp. nov. is proposed. The type strain is Rs-Y01 (=JCM 32106=DSM 105715).
