Abstract

A Gram-stain-positive bacterium, designated strain NIO-1109, was isolated from a marine sediment sample from Chorao Island, Goa, India. Phenotypic and chemotaxonomic characteristics and data from phylogenetic analysis based on 16S rRNA gene sequences indicated that strain NIO-1109 was related to the genus . Strain NIO-1109 exhibited >98.0 % 16S rRNA gene sequence similarity with respect to HHS 31 (99.5 %) and NCIMB 9889 (99.1 %); the type strains of other species showed <98 % similarity. Levels of DNA–DNA relatedness between strain NIO-1109 and DSM 20416 and LMG 23471 were less than 70 % (33.0±2.0 and 37±3.2 %, respectively). Strain NIO-1109 also differed from these two closely related species in a number of phenotypic traits. Based on phenotypic, chemotaxonomic and phylogenetic data, strain NIO-1109 is considered to represent a novel species of the genus , for which the name sp. nov. is proposed. The type strain is NIO-1109 ( = NCIM 5457 = DSM 25128 = CCTCC AB 2011124).
