Strain WS9, a mutualistic-associated bacterium, was isolated from an unknown entomopathogenic Steinernema nematode, collected from a litchi orchard in Friedenheim, Mpumalanga, South Africa. Based on phenotypic and phylogenetic data of the 16S rRNA, gltX, recA, dnaN, gyrB and infB gene sequences, strain WS9 is identified as X. griffiniae. Strain WS9 has antibacterial activity against Gram-positive and Gram-negative bacteria. This is the first report of an association between X. griffiniae and an unknown Steinernema species from South Africa.
