A Gram-positive, spore-forming, rod-shaped actinomycete, designated XJ46(T), was isolated from Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region, China and subjected to a polyphasic taxonomic analysis. Morphological and chemotaxonomic characteristics of XJ46(T) were identified as being similar to those of members of the genus Prauserella. The phylogenetic tree based on 16S rRNA gene sequences showed that XJ46(T) shared the highest similarity (95.9%) with Prauserella marina MS498(T). Based on its phenotypic characteristics, chemotaxonomic analysis and 16S rRNA gene sequence analysis, strain XJ46(T). is proposed to represent a novel species of the genus Prauserella, named Prauserella shujinwangii sp. nov. The type strain is XJ46(T) (=CGMCC 4.7125(T)=JCM 19736(T)).
