Abstract

A bacterial strain, BIT-26, was isolated from the gut of plastic-eating mealworm L. The taxonomic position of this new isolate was investigated by using a polyphasic approach. Cells of the strain were Gram-stain-negative, facultatively anaerobic, motile rods with peritrichous flagella. The 16S rRNA gene sequence (1412 bp) of strain BIT-26 showed the highest similarity (97.4 %) to CFBP 5888, followed by NBRC 105722 (97.3 %), LMG 25383 (97.3 %), ATCC 51329 (97.2 %) and QC88-366 (97.2 %). The results of phylogenetic analyses, based on the 16S rRNA gene and concatenated sequences of four housekeeping genes (, , and ), placed strain BIT-26 within the genus of the family . This affiliation was also supported by the chemotaxonomic data. Strain BIT-26 had similar predominant fatty acids, including C, C, C, C cyclo and C cyclo 8, to species of the genus . DNA–DNA hybridization and average nucleotide identity calculations plus physiological and biochemical tests allowed the genotypic and phenotypic differentiation of strain BIT-26 from other species of the genus with validly published names. Therefore, strain BIT-26 is considered to represent a novel species, for which the name sp. nov is proposed. The type strain is BIT-26 (=CGMCC 1.17041=KCTC 72449).
