Title Bacillus okuhidensis sp. nov., isolated from the Okuhida spa area of Japan.
Journal Int. J. Syst. Evol. Microbiol.
Abstract Two Gram-positive, endospore-forming, alkaliphilic bacteria were isolated from water samples obtained from the Okuhida hot spa area of Japan. The unknown bacteria were characterized using phenotypic and molecular taxonomic methods. On the basis of phylogenetic evidence and phenotypic distinctiveness, a new species, Bacillus okuhidensis sp. nov., is proposed. The type strain of Bacillus okuhidensis is GTC 854T (= JCM 10945T = DSM 13666T).
