Marlene,

NRRL (http://nrrl.ncaur.usda.gov/) has it:

Methylobacterium mesophilicum (Austin and Goodfellow 1979) Green and
Bousfield 1983
Synonym: Pseudomonas mesophilica

NRRL B-14246 (Type strain)
Accession No in other collection(s): B-14246=A47, Austin=ATCC 29983=DSM 1708
Isolated from (substrate): leaf, Loliium perenne

Or, request a sample from a researcher publishing work with the particular
strain you are interested in (particularly in ASM journals).

Good luck!

Matt
