Abstract

sp. nov., which was isolated from hypersaline habitats, is described. Our description is based on 26 strains that exhibit high levels of phenotypic similarity (simple matching coefficient, >74%) and DNA-DNA homology (<71%). The organisms are moderately halophilic gram-negative rods; growth occurs at salt concentrations between 2.5 and 20% (wt/vol) (optimal growth occurs at a salt concentration of 5% [wt/vol]). is aerobic, nonmotile, and catalase and oxidase positive. The cells accumulate poly-β-hydroxybutyrate, and the G+C contents of the DNAs range from 60.4 to 64.2 mol%. The type strain is strain F8-11 (= ATCC 49509).
