Thiobacillus novellus is a facultatively chemolithoautotrophic and methylotrophic, Gram-negative, rod-shaped sulfur bacterium, shown by 16S rRNA gene sequence analysis to be a member of the alpha-2 subclass of the Proteobacteria, As such, it must be excluded from the genus Thiobacillus. whose species are members of the beta-Proteobacteria, It closest phylogenetic neighbour appears to be Ancylobacter, from which it is distinct morphologically and in some physiological characteristics. It is distinct physiologically and biochemically in a number of diagnostic features from Paracoccus versutus, in the alpha-3 subclass of the Proteobacteria and does not appear to be sufficiently closely related to any other genus of the alpha-Proteobacteria to be reassigned to a known genus. The new genus and species name Starkeya novella is proposed for T, novellus, The type strain is ATCC 8093(T) (= NCIMB 10456(T) = NCIMB 9113(T) = DSM 506(T) = IAM 12100(T) = IFO 12443(T) = CCM 1077(T)).
