Abstract

A Gram-stain-negative, orange-coloured, rod-shaped bacterium, designated strain Th68, was isolated from the intestine of flounder (). The isolate required sea salts for growth. Gliding motility was not observed. Flexirubin-type pigments were present. 16S rRNA gene sequence analysis indicated that strain Th68 represented a distinct phyletic line within the family with less than 96.1 % similarity to members of the recognized genera of the family. The DNA G+C content was 33.0 mol%. The major fatty acids were iso-C, iso-C G, iso-C 3-OH and iso-C 3-OH. The major polar lipids were phosphatidylethanolamine, two unidentified aminolipids and two unidentified polar lipids. Menaquinone 6 (MK-6) was the only respiratory quinone. On the basis of the phenotypic, chemotaxonomic and phylogenetic data, strain Th68 represents a novel species of a new genus in the family , for which the name gen. nov., sp. nov. is proposed. The type strain of is Th68 ( = JCM 18637 = KCTC 32141).
