Bacillus vallisnloltis sp . nov . , a Close Relative of Bacillus subtilis , Isolated from Soil in Death Valley , California


Five Bacillus strains isolated from Death Valley soil were shown to belong to a previously unidentified species, for which we propose the name Bacillus vallismortis. The type strain is strain DVI-F-3 (= NRRL B-14890). On the basis of previously published restriction digestion data, B. vallismortis is most closely related to Bacillus subtilis. At this time B… (More)
