Abstract

A Gram-reaction-positive, aerobic bacterial strain showing coccoid cells and designated as BC 501 was isolated from a black patina of the surface of a Carrara marble blockin the Gioia quarry in Tuscany, Italy. A polyphasic study was carried out to clarify the taxonomic status of BC 501 within the evolutionary radiation of the genus Modestobacter . Phenotypic and genotypic characteristics as well as phylogenetic distinctiveness confirmed that it represents a novel species of the genus Modestobacter , for which the name Modestobacter italicus sp. nov. is proposed. The type strain is BC 501 (=DSM 44449=CECT 9708). Emended descriptions of the genus Modestobacter and the species Modestobacter marinus, Modestobacter multiseptatus, Modestobacter roseus and Modestobacter versicolor are also proposed.
