Summary A new thermophilic species of the genus Clostridium is described, which was isolated from palm wine in Senegal. The cells were anaerobic sporeforming rods, 0.7–1.0 μm wide and 2.0 to 8.0 μm long. The optimum growth temperature was about 55 °C. Sugars were mainly fermented to butyric acid. H 2 , CO 2 , small amounts of acetate, lactate and ethanol were produced. The G+C content of DNA was 35.7±0.3 mol%. The name Clostridium thermopalmarium sp. nov. is proposed for this species; the type… CONTINUE READING
