strains isolated from plankton, sediments, and seawater in two coastal areas south of Valencia, Spain, were genotypically and phenotypically different from other species. The guanine-plus-cytosyine content of the strains was 43 mol%. Deoxyribonucleic acid-deoxyribonucleic acid hybridization studies revealed that the strains were genetically homogeneous and exhibited very low levels of genetic relatedness to ATCC 17802(T = type strain) (0%), NCMB 1280(11%), NCMB 2046(7%), NCMB 1897(0%), NCMB (9%), and NCMB 1(0%). Strain CECT 621 of the Colección Española de Cultivos Tipo was designated the type strain of the proposed new species
