A Gram-stain-negative, non-motile, yellow-pigmented and rod-shaped bacterial strain, designated SN6-13T, was isolated from soil of the Gotjawal, lava forest, located in Jeju, Republic of Korea. Cells of strain SN6-13T were oxidase- and catalase-positive. The isolate contained Q-10 as the predominant isoprenoid quinone, summed feature 8 (C18:1ω7c and/or C18:1ω6c) and C16:0 as the major fatty acids, sym-homospermidine as the major polyamine and diphosphatidylglycerol, phosphatidylglycerol, phosphatidylethanolamine, phosphatidylcholine, sphingoglycolipid, ninhydrinphosphatidylglycerol and two unidentified aminophospholipids as the polar lipids. The DNA G+C content was 64.6 mol%. In phylogenetic analyses based on 16S rRNA gene sequencing, strain SN6-13T was most closely related to Sphingomonas laterariae LNB2T (95.4% sequence similarity) and formed a separate lineage in the genus Sphingomonas. Based on phenotypic, chemotaxonomic and phylogenetic characteristics, it is concluded that strain SN6-13T represents a novel species of the genus Sphingomonas, for which the name Sphingomonas vulcanisoli sp. nov. is proposed. The type strain is SN6-13T (=KCTC 42454T=CECT 8804T).
