A total of 32 amino-acid-requiring, gram-negative, polarly flagellated, marine, rod-shaped bacteria were submitted to an extensive phenotypic characterization. Numerical analysis of the data grouped the strains into three clusters, one of which was identified as The strains in the remaining clusters had properties characteristic of the genus and were phenotypically distinct from each other as well as from the previously characterized species of this genus. One cluster was designated sp. nov. (type strain, 261 [= ATCC 29659]), and the other was designated sp. nov. (type strain, 272 [= ATCC 29660]).
