Abstract

A Gram-negative, aerobic, greyish–yellowish-pigmented, stenohaline, rod-shaped, non-motile bacterium, strain KMM 3900, was isolated from a coastal seawater sample collected from the Sea of Japan. Based on phylogenetic analysis, strain KMM 3900 was positioned within the on a separate branch adjacent to members of the genera and , sharing less than 88 % 16S rRNA gene sequence similarity with all recognized species of the . The major isoprenoid quinone was Q-8. Polar lipids consisted of phosphatidylcholine, phosphatidylethanolamine, phosphatidylglycerol, diphosphatidylglycerol and two unknown phospholipids. Fatty acid analysis revealed iso-C, C 7 and C as the dominant components. The DNA G+C content was 43.8 mol%. Based on its unique phenotypic characteristics and phylogenetic remoteness, marine isolate KMM 3900 is considered to represent a novel genus and species, for which the name gen. nov., sp. nov. is proposed. The type strain of is KMM 3900 (=NRIC 0758 =JCM 16154).
