Abstract

A total of 14 strains were isolated from the blood of two patients and from dialysis machines of a renal care centre. The strains were Gram-negative, halophilic, motile and non-spore-forming rods. They produced cream-coloured colonies and contained Q-9 as the predominant ubiquinone and C 7 and C as the major fatty acids. Phylogenetic analysis based on 16S rRNA gene sequencing showed that the 14 isolates were most closely related to 21 MI with 98.1–98.9 % sequence similarity and that they formed three separate lineages among themselves. Combined phenotypic and DNA–DNA hybridization data support the conclusion that they represent three novel species of the genus , for which the names sp. nov. (type strain S18214=KCTC 22148=DSM 21198), sp. nov. (type strain W1025=KCTC 22154=DSM 21196) and sp. nov. (type strain T68687=KCTC 22157=DSM 21197) are proposed.
