A Gram-negative, non-sporulating, non-flagellated rod, designated BR-9 T, was isolated from soil collected on the Korean peninsula. Strain BR-9 T grew optimally at pH 6.0-7.0, at 30 °C and in the absence of NaCl. Phylogenetic analysis based on 16S rRNA gene sequences revealed that strain BR-9 T belonged to the genus Pedobacter and clustered with Pedobacter insulae DS-139T and Pedobacter koreensis WPCB189 T. Strain BR-9 T exhibited 98.2 and 97.5% 16S rRNA gene sequence similarity with P. insulae DS-139 T and P. koreensis WPCB189 T, respectively, and < 96.7% sequence similarity with the type strains of other species in the genus Pedobacter. Strain BR-9 T contained MK-7 as the predominant menaquinone and iso-C 15: 0 and summed feature 3 (C 16:1 ω7c and/or iso-C 15:0 2-OH) as the major fatty acids. The DNA G+C content of strain BR-9 T was 38.5 mol%. DNA-DNA relatedness between strain BR-9 T and P. insulae DS-139 T and P. koreensis KCTC 12536 T was 3.4-4.2 %, which indicated that the isolate was genetically distinct from these type strains. Strain BR-9 T was also distinguishable by differences in phenotypic properties. On the basis of the data presented, strain BR-9 T is considered to represent a novel species of the genus Pedobacter, for which the name Pedobacter boryungensis sp. nov. is proposed. The type strain is BR-9 T (=KCTC 23344 T =CCUG 60024 T).
