A yellow-pigmented actinobacterium, designated strain MSL-13T, was isolated from a soil sample collected from Bigeum Island, Republic of Korea, and its taxonomic position was determined by using a polyphasic approach. Strain MSL-13T showed phenotypic and chemotaxonomic properties consistent with its classification in the genus Leifsonia. 16S rRNA gene sequence analysis of strain MSL-13T with sequences from Leifsonia naganoensis DB103T, Leifsonia aquatica DSM 20146T, Leifsonia xyli subsp. cynodontis JCM 9733T, Leifsonia poae VKM Ac-1401T and Leifsonia shinshuensis DB102T revealed similarities of 96.22, 96.19, 95.77, 95.44 and 95.37 %, respectively, with differences of 39-65 nt among 1483 total nucleotides aligned. Based on differences in phenotypic and genotypic characteristics, strain MSL-13T (=KCTC 19267T =DSM 19272T) is designated as the type strain of a novel species of the genus Leifsonia, for which the name Leifsonia kribbensis sp. nov. is proposed.
