A Gram-reaction-negative, aerobic, non-motile, red-pigmented and rod-shaped bacterium, designated XF-6R(T), was isolated from mountain soil in the Sichuan province of China. Phylogenetic trees based on 16S rRNA gene sequence analysis showed that XF-6R(T) belonged to the genus Hymenobacter. The greatest 16S rRNA gene sequence similarities of strain XF-6R(T) were with Hymenobacter soli PB17(T) (96.4 %) and Hymenobacter saemangeumensis GSR0100(T) (95.8 %). Summed feature 3 (C16 : 1ω7c and/or C16 : 1ω6c), iso-C15 : 0, C16 : 1ω5c and anteiso-C15 : 0 were the major fatty acids (>10 %). The only menaquinone was menaquinone-7. The major polar lipids were phosphatidylethanolamine, four aminolipids, four phosphoaminolipids and three lipids. The DNA G+C content was 62 mol%. On the basis of the polyphasic taxonomic analysis, strain XF-6R(T) is considered to represent a novel species of the genus Hymenobacter, for which the name Hymenobacter monticola sp. nov. is proposed. The type strain is XF-6R(T) ( = KCTC 42733(T) = CCTCC AB 2015206(T)).
