A Gram-positive, aerobic, non-motile strain, H2.16BT, isolated from the midgut of the mosquito Anopheles arabiensis was investigated using a polyphasic approach. On the basis of 16S rRNA gene sequence similarity studies, strain H2.16BT was shown to belong to the genus Janibacter, being most closely related to Janibacter melonis (98.3%), Janibacter terrae (98.5%) and Janibacter limosus (98.5%). Chemotaxonomic data (meso-diaminopimelic acid as the diagnostic diamino acid in the cell wall and major fatty acids of iso-C16:0, C17:1omega8c and C17:0)) supported the allocation of the strain to the genus Janibacter. The results of DNA-DNA hybridization and physiological and biochemical tests allowed the genotypic and phenotypic differentiation of strain H2.16BT from closely related species. Thus, H2.16BT represents a novel species of the genus Janibacter, for which the name Janibacter anophelis sp. nov. is proposed. The type strain is H2.16BT (=CCUG 49715T=CIP 108728T).
