A Gram-negative, rod-shaped organism (CCUG 49520T) was isolated from the midgut of the mosquito Anopheles arabiensis. 16S rRNA gene sequence analysis demonstrated that this isolate is unique, showing <93% similarity to species of the families Enterobacteriaceae and Vibrionaceae. The quinone system consisted exclusively of ubiquinone Q-8; the polar lipid profile consisted of the major compounds phosphatidylethanolamine and phosphatidylglycerol, a moderate to minor amount of two unknown aminophospholipids, an unknown phospholipid and two unknown polar lipids; the polyamine pattern was characterized by the predominant compound 1,3-diaminopropane and showed some significant differences when compared with members of the Enterobacteriaceae and Vibrionaceae. On the basis of 16S rRNA gene sequence analysis in combination with chemotaxonomic data, strain CCUG 49520T is considered to represent a new genus and species, for which the name Thorsellia anophelis gen. nov., sp. nov. is proposed. The type strain is CCUG 49520T (=CIP 108754T).
