A strictly aerobic, motile, endospore-forming, rod-shaped bacterium, designated HS21T, was isolated from rhizospheric soil of the Korean fir tree (Abies koreana) from Halla mountain on Jeju island, Korea. Growth of strain HS21T was observed at pH 6.0-8.0 (optimum: pH 7.0), 0-2% (w/v) NaCl and 4-30°C (optimum: 25°C). A comparative analysis of 16S rRNA gene sequences showed that strain HS21T was most closely related to Cohnella luojiensis HY-22RT (97.6%), followed by C. lupini RLAHU4BT (97.4%) and C. collisoli NKM-5T (97.2%). The genome of strain HS21T comprised a circular chromosome of 7,059,027 bp with 44.8% G + C content. The DNA-DNA relatedness values between strain HS21T and C. luojiensis HY-22RT and C. lupini RLAHU4BT were 18.1% and 13.8%, respectively. The major cellular fatty acids (> 5%) of the isolate were anteiso-C15:0, iso-C16:0, C16:0, and iso-C15:0. The polar lipids present were diphosphatidylglycerol, phosphatidylglycerol, phosphatidylethanolamine, lysylphosphatidylglycerol, and three unidentified aminophospholipids. Based on its phenotypic, phylogenetic, genomic, and chemotaxonomic properties, strain HS21T represents a novel species of the genus Cohnella, for which the name Cohnella abietis sp. nov. is proposed. The type strain is HS21T (= KCTC 43028T = CCTCC AB 2019010T).
