Strain 10-1-101(T), isolated from a sand sample collected from the desert of Xinjiang, China, was a Gram-negative, aerobic, motile, rod-shaped bacterium. Colonies grown on 0.1x trypticase soy broth agar were circular, convex and light-pink-coloured. The major cellular fatty acids of the novel strain were C(18 : 1)omega7c (72.71 %) and C(16 : 0) (7.05 %). The DNA G+C content of strain 10-1-101(T )was 68.8 mol% and Q-10 was the major respiratory quinone. 16S rRNA gene sequence analysis indicated that strain 10-1-101(T) was related to type strains of the genus Skermanella, with sequence similarity values of 94.07 % with Skermanella aerolata DSM 18479(T) and 92.74 % with Skermanella parooensis DSM 9527(T). On the basis of genotypic, phenotypic and phylogenetic data, this new strain represents a novel species of the genus Skermanella, for which the name Skermanella xinjiangensis sp. nov. is proposed. The type strain is 10-1-101(T) (=CCTCC AB 207153(T)=NRRL B-51273(T)).
