Ramlibacter pinisoli sp. nov., a novel bacterial species isolated from pine garden soil.
Abstract A Gram-stain-negative, aerobic, non-motile and rod- or coccoid-shaped novel bacterial strain, designated MAH-25T, was isolated from soil sampled in a pine garden.

Proposal of Bifidobacterium saeculare Biavati et al. 1992 as a later heterotypic synonym of Bifidobacterium gallinarum Watabe et al. 1983 and Bifidobacterium gallinarum subsp. saeculare subsp. nov.
Abstract In 2018, Nouioui et al. transferred Bifidobacterium gallinarum and Bifidobacterium saeculare to Bifidobacterium pullorum as B. pullorum subsp. gallinarum and B. pullorum subsp. saeculare on the basis of digital DNA-DNA hybridization (dDDH) values. These two new subspecies were validated in the same year. However, we found that the genome (GenBank/ENA/DDBJ accession number JGZJ01000000) of B. pullorum used by Nouioui et al. in the dDDH analysis cannot represent B. pullorum. So, the taxonomic relationship between B. gallinarum, B. saeculare and B. pullorum should be re-examined. B. pullorum DSM 20433T had 8...

Unification of Abyssicoccus albus Jiang et al. 2016 and Auricoccus indicus Prakash et al. 2017 and the status of the genus Auricoccus Prakash et al. 2017.
Abstract Based on the high phylogenetic relatedness of Auricoccus indicus Prakash et al. 2017 and Abyssicoccus albus Jiang et al. 2016, it is proposed to unite them with retaining the latter name as having nomenclatural priority. As the result of the species unification, the genus Auricoccus name is proposed to consider as illegitimate in the boundaries determined by Rule 51a of the International Code of Nomenclature of Prokaryotes.

Phylogenetic analyses based on 16S rRNA and 40 marker gene sequences revealed that the strains formed a distinct phylogenetic lineage within the order Rhodocyclales. The three strains shared 100 % 16S rRNA gene similarity. Growth occurred at 15-30 °C and pH 6.0-9.5, but not in the presence of ≥1.0 % (w/v) NaCl. The isolates stained positive for intracellular polyphosphate granules. The major cell...

Methanolobus halotolerans sp. nov., isolated from the saline Lake Tus in Siberia.
Abstract A halotolerant, psychrotolerant and methylotrophic methanogen, strain SY-01T, was isolated from the saline Lake Tus in Siberia. Cells of strain SY-01T were non-motile, cocci and 0.8-1.0 µm in diameter. The only methanogenic substrate utilized by strain SY-01T was methanol.

Strain ATCC 4720T is the authentic type strain of Agrobacterium tumefaciens, which is not a later heterotypic synonym of Agrobacterium radiobacter.
Igual JM, Peix Á Abstract The original type strains of Agrobacterium radiobacter and Agrobacterium tumefaciens recorded in the eighth edition of Bergey's Manual of Determinative Bacteriology published in 1974 were NCIB 9042T and ATCC 4720T, respectively. However, in the list of the valid names of bacteria compiled in 1980, both strains were changed, A. radiobacter NCIB 9042T to ATCC 19358T and A. tumefaciens ATCC 4720T to ATCC 23308T. These changes were unjustified, particularly in the case of A. tumefaciens whose type strain was replaced by another strain from the same collection, although the original typ...

Paenibacillus apii sp. nov., a novel nifH gene-harbouring species isolated from the rhizospheres of vegetable plants grown in different regions of northern China.
Abstract Two nifH gene-harbouring bacterial strains were isolated from rhizospheres of different vegetable plants grown in different regions of northern PR China. The two strains possessed almost identical 16S rRNA gene sequences. The average nucleotide identity (ANI) and digital DNA-DNA hybridization (dDDH) values between the two strains were 99.21 and 93.6% respectively, suggesting they belong to one species. Based on 16S rRNA gene phylogeny, the two strains were clustered together with Paenibacillus rhizophilus 7197T, Paenibacillus sabinae T27T and Paenibacillus forsythiae T98T, but on a separate branch.

Proposal of 'Candidatus Frankia alpina', the uncultured symbiont of Alnus alnobetula and A. incana that forms spore-containing nitrogen-fixing root nodules.
Abstract The members of the genus Frankia are, with a few exceptions, a group of nitrogen-fixing symbiotic actinobacteria that nodulate mostly woody dicotyledonous plants belonging to three orders, eight families and 23 genera of pioneer dicots. These bacteria have been characterized phylogenetically and grouped into four molecular clusters. One of the clusters, cluster 1 contains strains that induce nodules on Alnus spp. (Betulaceae), Myrica spp., Morella spp. and Comptonia spp. (Myricaceae) that have global distributions. Some of these strains produce not only hyphae and vesicles, as other cluster 1 strains do, ...

Methylococcus geothermalis sp. nov., a methanotroph isolated from a geothermal field in the Republic of Korea.
Abstract A Gram-stain-negative, aerobic, non-motile and coccoid methanotroph, strain IM1T, was isolated from hot spring soil. Cells of strain IM1T were catalase-negative, oxidase-positive and displayed a characteristic intracytoplasmic membrane arrangement of type I methanotrophs. The strain possessed genes encoding both membrane-bound and soluble methane monooxygenases and grew only on methane or methanol. The strain was capable of growth at temperatures between 15 and 48 °C (optimum, 30-45 °C) and pH values between pH 4.8 and 8.2 (optimum, pH 6.2-7.0). Based on phylogenetic analysis of 16S ...

Antrihabitans stalactiti gen. nov., sp. nov., a new member of the family Nocardiaceae isolated from a cave.
Abstract Two Gram-stain-positive, strictly aerobic, non-spore-forming actinobacterial strains, designated YC2-7T and YC5-17, were isolated from the Yongcheondonggul (larva cave) in Jeju, Republic of Korea and their taxonomic ranks were examined by a polyphasic approach. The 16S rRNA gene tree showed that the novel isolates occupied an independent position separated from recognized genera of the family Nocardiaceae. In the 92 core gene-based phylogenomic analysis, strain YC2-7T was loosely associated with the type strain of Aldersonia kummingensis with 66.2 % average amino acid identity. The 16S rRNA gene sequenc...

Bradyrhizobium hipponense sp. nov., isolated from Lupinus angustifolius growing in the northern region of Tunisia.
e;n M Abstract Strain aSej3T was isolated from a root nodule of a Lupinus angustifolius plant growing in Bizerte, Tunisia. 16S rRNA gene analysis placed this strain within the genus Bradyrhizobium.
