Strain THG-SQA7T, a Gram-negative, strictly aerobic, non-motile, rod-shaped bacterium was isolated from rhizosphere soil of a rose in PR China. Strain THG-SQA7T is closely related to the members of the genus Sphingobium, showing the highest 16S rRNA gene sequence similarities with Sphingobium lactosutens KACC 18100T (98.2 %) and Sphingobium abikonense KCTC 2864T (98.1 %). The DNA–DNA relatedness between strain THG-SQA7T and S. lactosutens KACC 18100T and S. abikonense KCTC 2864T was 26.2 ± 0.9 and 28.3 ± 1.2 %, respectively. Chemotaxonomic data showed that strain THG-SQA7T possesses ubiquinone Q-10 as the predominant respiratory quinone, and C18:1 ω7c, C16:0, summed feature 3 (C16:1 ω7c and/or C16:1 ω6c) and C14:0 2OH as the major fatty acids. The major polar lipids were found to be phosphatidylethanolamine, phosphatidylmonomethylethanolamine, phosphatidylglycerol, sphingoglycolipid, diphosphatidylglycerol and phosphatidyldimethylethanolamine. Based on these results, together with phenotypic characterization, a novel species, Sphingobium soli sp. nov. is proposed.with the type strain is THG-SQA7T (=CCTCC AB 2015125T = KCTC 42607T).
