A polyphasic taxonomic approach was applied for the study of a Gram negative bacterium (B2(T)) isolated from soil by selective enrichment with pentachlorophenol. The 16S rRNA gene sequence analysis of strain B2(T) showed that this strain belongs to the genus Achromobacter, within the Betaproteobacteria. The 16S rRNA gene sequence possessing more than 99% similarity to the sequences of the type strains of all species in Achromobacter, with the highest sequence similarities to those of A. spanius CCM 7183(T) and A. piechaudii CCM 2986(T) (99.8 %). On the basis of phylogenetic analysis, genomic DNA-DNA similarities and phenotypic characteristics, including chemotaxonomic (cell fatty acid profile) analysis, a novel species is proposed, Achromobacter marplatensis sp. nov., with the type strain B2(T) (= CCM 7608(T) = CCUG 56371(T) = CECT 7342(T)).
