A Gram-stain-negative, aerobic, non-motile, rod-shaped, and yellow-pigmented bacterium, designated strain ID1709T, was isolated from an automotive air conditioning system collected in Korea. Analysis of 16S rRNA gene sequence similarity showed that strain ID1709T had 92.2–94.3% similarities with the type strains of members of the genus Flavisolibacter. The major cellular fatty acids were iso-C15:0, iso-C15:1 G, iso-C17:0 3-OH, and summed feature 3 (C16:1ω7c and/or C16:1ω6c). The predominant respiratory quinone was MK-7. The polar lipids comprised phosphatidylethanolamine, aminoglycophospholipid, two unidentified aminolipids, and three unidentified lipids. The DNA G + C content of the strain was 35.6 mol%. Based on phenotypic, chemotaxonomic, and genotypic data, strain ID1709T represents a novel species in the genus Flavisolibacter, for which the name Flavisolibacter aluminii sp. nov. (= KACC 19451T = KCTC 52778T = NBRC 112870T), is proposed.
