Abstract

A Gram-stain-positive, aerobic bacterium, TB-66, was isolated from a pile of bat guano in a cave of New Mexico, USA. On the basis of 16S rRNA gene sequence similarity comparisons, strain TB-66grouped together with Filibacter limicola showing a 16S rRNA gene sequence similarity of 98.5 % to the type strain. The quinone system of strain TB-66 consisted predominantly of menaquinone MK-7. The polar lipid profile contained diphosphatidylglycerol, phosphatidylglycerol, phosphatidylethanolamine, phosphatidylmonomethylethanolamine, phosphatidylserine and three unidentified phospholipids. The peptidoglycan type was A4α l-Lys–d-Glu (A11.33). The major fatty acids were C15 : 0 anteiso, C16 : 0, and C16 : 1 ω7c. The G+C content of the genomic DNA was 37.6 (±1.8) mol%. On the basis of the genotypic and phenotypic properties it is clear that strain TB-66 represents a member of the genus Filibacter, but is distinct from the only other species in the genus, Filibacter limicola DSM 13886. We propose a novel species with the name Filibacter tadaridae sp. nov. The type strain is TB-66 (= CIP 111629= LMG 30660= CCM 8866).
