Abstract

A Gram-stain-negative, rod-shaped, non-motile, non-spore-forming, aerobic, yellow-pigmented bacterium was isolated from chicken feather waste collected from an abattoir in Bloemfontein, South Africa. A polyphasic taxonomy study was used to describe and name the bacterial isolate, strain 1_F178. The 16S rRNA gene sequence analysis and sequence comparison data indicated that strain 1_F178 was a member of the genus and was closely related to (99.1%) and (98.7%). Overall genome similarity metrics (average nucleotide identity, digital DNA–DNA hybridization and average amino acid identity) revealed greatest similarity to the and type strains but were below the threshold for species delineation. Genome sequencing revealed a genome size of 6.18 Mbp and a G+C content of 35.6 mol%. The major respiratory quinone and most abundant polar lipid of strain 1_F178 were menaquinone-6 and phosphatidylethanolamine, respectively. Strain 1_F178 had a typical fatty acid composition for species. On the basis of physiological, genotypic, phylogenetic and chemotaxonomic data, strain 1_F178 constitutes a novel species of , for which the name sp. nov. is proposed. The type strain is 1_F178 (=LMG 30779=KCTC 62759).
