A psychrotolerant anaerobe, strain ART1T, was isolated from a psychrophilic anaerobic digester treating . 16S rRNA gene sequence of strain ART1T was highly similar to those of other Trichococcus species (> 99%), but digital DNA-DNA hybridization (dDDH) values were lower than 70% indicating that strain ART1 is a new species of the genus Trichococcus. Cells of strain ART1T were immotile cocci and stained Gram-positive. Growth was optimal at pH 7.5 and cells could grow in a temperature range of 0 to 37°C (optimum 30°C). Strain ART1T could degrade several carbohydrates, and the main products from glucose fermentation are lactate, acetate, formate, and ethanol. .
