Two groups of nocardioform organisms isolated from marine sediments were studied, along with representative strains of the genera , and . Strains of the red- or orange-colored group showed no marine affinity and exhibited a close relationship to . The 17 marine isolates of the cream-colored group formed a homogeneous well-separated cluster and were particularly characterized as moderately halophilic and psychrotrophic organisms. These isolates were assigned to a new species within the genus . We propose the name , referring to the exclusive occurrence of this taxon in the sea, and describe the properties of the species and of type strain 3438W (= DSM 43752).
