Abstract

A novel Gram-stain-negative, aerobic, heterotrophic, obligately halophilic bacterium, designated strain JJM85, was isolated from beach sand in Jeju, Republic of Korea. Cells were rod-shaped and motile by means of flagella; colonies were pink, convex and smooth with an entire edge. The organism grew at pH 5.0–10.0 and 4–30 °C. Phylogenetic analysis based on 16S rRNA gene sequences showed that the organism belonged to the genus of the class and formed a tight cluster with the type strain of (96.0 % sequence similarity). The DNA G+C content and fatty acid profile of the novel strain supported affiliation with the genus . However, the novel strain could be differentiated clearly from members of this genus by cell motility, some physiological properties and low 16S rRNA gene sequence similarity (93.1–96.0 %). On the basis of the polyphasic data presented here, strain JJM85 is considered to represent a novel species of the genus , for which the name sp. nov. is proposed; the type strain is JJM85 (=KCTC 22372 =DSM 21424).
