Abstract

A novel Gram-negative bacteria, named CZ41_10a, was isolated from coastal surface waters of the north-western Mediterranean Sea. Cells were motile, pleomorphic rods, 1.6 μm long and 0.7 μm wide and formed cream colonies on marine agar medium. The G+C content of the genomic DNA was 65 mol%. Phylogenetic analysis of 16S rRNA gene sequences placed the new isolate in the genus , a member of the family , class . Unlike CL-GR58, its closest relative, strain CZ41_10a was unable to grow anaerobically and did not exhibit nitrate reductase activity. On the basis of DNA–DNA hybridization, fatty acid content and physiological and biochemical characteristics, this isolate represents a novel species for which the name sp. nov. is proposed. The type strain is CZ41_10a (=DSM 19539=CIP 109064=MOLA 84). An emended description of the genus is also given.
