Abstract

A Gram-positive-staining, non-motile, rod- or coccoid-shaped bacterium, strain CLG, was isolated from beach sand from Lianyungang, Jiangsu Province, PR China. The organism grew optimally at 30 °C and pH 7.0. Strain CLG contained -Lys–-Asp as the peptidoglycan type and galactose, rhamnose and xylose as the whole-cell sugars. It contained anteiso-C and iso-C as the major fatty acids. The major polar lipids were diphosphatidylglycerol, phosphatidylglycerol, phospholipid, phosphatidylinositol, three phosphoglycolipids and one unidentified lipid. The DNA G+C content was 70.3 mol%. The 16S rRNA gene sequence similarity of strain CLG with DS-3 was 99.4 % but the DNA–DNA relatedness between strain CLG and DS-3 was 58.7 %. There were also many phenotypic properties that distinguished strain CLG from recognized species of the genus . The results showed that strain CLG represents a novel species of the genus , for which the name sp. nov. is proposed. The type strain is CLG (=DSM 21863=CCTCC AB208287).
