The taxonomic position of a novel bacterial strain, Ch06T, isolated from an upflow anaerobic sludge blanket reactor was determined. Strain Ch06T was Gram-negative, aerobic, motile and oxidase- and catalase-positive. A comparative 16S rRNA gene sequence analysis showed a clear affiliation of strain Ch06T to the Alphaproteobacteria and it was most closely related to Zoogloea ramigera ATCC 19623 and Mycoplana dimorpha IAM 13154T (97.9 and 96.3% sequence similarity, respectively).
