A Gram-stain-positive, rod-shaped, endospore-forming, aerobic bacterial strain, designated ZS110521T, was isolated from high-temperature Daqu, a starter for production of Chinese Jiang-flavour Baijiu and was characterised by polyphasic taxonomy. This novel isolate grew in the presence of 0-20 % (w/v) NaCl, at pH 6.0-9.0 and 20-50 °C; optimum growth was observed with 8-10 % (w/v) NaCl, at pH 7.0 and 37 °C. A comparative analysis of the 16S rRNA gene sequence (1460 bp) of ZS110521T revealed that it displayed the highest similarity to Lentibacillus populi WD4L-1T (95.5 %), followed by Lentibacillus garicola SL-MJ1T (95.4 %) and Lentibacillus lacisalsi BH260T (95.2 %). ANI and dDDH values between ZS110521T and other strains of species of the genus Lentibacillus were less than 78 and 28 %, respectively. The predominant cellular fatty acids (> 10 %) of ZS110521T were anteiso-C17: 0 (37.8 %), anteiso-C15:...
