Sphingomonas yanoikuyae is a species of bacteria.[1] Its type strain is JCM 7371 (= GIFU 9882). It is notable for degrading a variety of aromatic compounds including biphenyl, naphthalene, phenanthrene, toluene, m-, and p-xylene.[2][3] S. yanoikuyae was discovered by Brian Goodman on the southern coast of Papua New Guinea.
