Abstract

A newly described strain of the genus was isolated from submarine canyon sediments and is shown by comparative sequence analyses of 16S ribosomal DNA and the gene encoding methyl coenzyme M reductase, I, to be a strain of . Morphological and physiological characteristics are described. In contrast to the two previously described strains that grow exclusively on methanol, methylamines, and dimethylsulfide, C2J is also capable of growth on and methanogenesis from acetate. We propose that the species description for be amended to include aceticlastic strains.
