Three strains of aerobic Gram-negative bacilli, two isolated from industrial water and freshwater (strains CCUG 48205T and CCUG 52220) and the third from soil (strain CCUG 52222T), were analysed phenotypically and genotypically to clarify their taxonomic classification. 16S rRNA gene sequence analysis revealed that the three strains were located on the same phylogenetic branch, closely related to Roseateles depolymerans, the only recognized species in the genus. DNA–DNA hybridization studies, analyses of fatty acid contents, and physiological and biochemical tests supported the proposal of two novel species, Roseateles aquatilis sp. nov. (type strain, CCUG 48205T=CECT 7248T) and Roseateles terrae sp. nov. (type strain, CCUG 52222T=CECT 7247T).
