Abstract

The taxonomic position of a novel Gram-stain-negative, aerobic, heterotrophic, gliding, yellow–orange-pigmented bacterium, isolated from the sea urchin and designated strain KMM 6048, was established. Phylogenetic analysis based on 16S rRNA gene sequencing revealed that the isolate was a member of the family affiliated with recognized species of the genus , forming a distinct lineage within the genus. 16S rRNA gene sequence similarities between strain KMM 6048 and the type strains of species of the genus were 97.4–98.4 %. In line with representative members of the genus , strain KMM 6048 was oxidase- and catalase-positive, hydrolysed gelatin and starch, utilized carbohydrates and possessed a DNA G+C content of 40.0 mol%. However, differentiating phenotypic traits and phylogenetic distinctiveness clearly indicated that the strain represented a novel species within the genus , for which the name sp. nov. is proposed; the type strain is KMM 6048 (=KCTC 12366=LMG 25418).
