Abstract

Five moderately halophilic gram-positive cocci were isolated from soils and ponds of a solar saltern located near Alicante, Spain. These organisms all were nonmotile, nonsporing, reddish orange pigmented, strictly aerobic, and catalase and oxidase positive, had -diaminopimelic acid in their cell walls, and had DNA base compositions ranging from 45.7 to 49.3 mol%; they constitute a homology group with levels of DNA-DNA homology ranging from 70 to 100%. On the basis of their features, we regard these strains as belonging to a new species of the genus , for which we propose the name . The type strain is strain J-82 (= ATCC 49259 = DSM 5352 = CCM 4148).
