Abstract

Three isolates (LMG 24369, LMG 24370 and R-26156) obtained from a marine electroactive biofilm that was grown on a cathodically polarized electrode were investigated by using a polyphasic taxonomic approach. Whole-cell fatty acid methyl ester and 16S rRNA gene sequence analyses indicated that the isolates were members of the genus , class . Genotypic and phenotypic analyses demonstrated that the three isolates represent a novel species of the genus , for which the name sp. nov. is proposed. The type strain is LMG 24369 (=CCUG 55859). The DNA G+C content of strain LMG 24369 is 63.6 mol%.
