Abstract

A Gram-negative, non-motile and pleomorphic bacterial strain, SMK-114, which belongs to the class , was isolated from a tidal flat sample collected in Byunsan, Korea. Strain SMK-114 grew optimally at pH 7.0–8.0 and 25–30 °C and in the presence of 2 % (w/v) NaCl. A neighbour-joining phylogenetic tree based on 16S rRNA gene sequences showed that strain SMK-114 formed a cluster with species, with which it exhibited 16S rRNA gene sequence similarity values of 95.2–95.4 %. This cluster was part of the clade comprising species with a bootstrap resampling value of 76.3 %. Strain SMK-114 exhibited 16S rRNA gene sequence similarity values of 95.1–96.3 % to members of the genus . It contained Q-10 as the predominant ubiquinone and C 7 as the major fatty acid. The DNA G+C content was 60.0 mol%. On the basis of phenotypic, chemotaxonomic and phylogenetic data, strain SMK-114 is considered to represent a novel species in a new genus for which the name gen. nov., sp. nov. is proposed. The type strain of is SMK-114 (=KCTC 22632 =CCUG 57612).
