Abstract

A taxonomic study was carried out on strain F44-8, which was isolated from a crude-oil-degrading consortium, enriched from marine sediment of the Beibu Gulf, PR China. The 16S rRNA gene sequence of strain F44-8 showed highest similarities to those of LMG 21922 (93.3 %), R2A1-13 (93.3 %) and LMG 21477 (93.1 %). Sequence similarities to other members of the genus were <93.0 %. The dominant fatty acids of strain F44-8 were iso-C, summed feature 3 (iso-C 2-OH and/or C 7), iso-C G and iso-C 3-OH. The DNA G+C content of strain F44-8 was 38.6 mol%. These results are consistent with characteristics of members of the genus . Strain F44-8 could, however, be readily distinguished from all known species by a number of phenotypic features. Therefore, according to the phenotypic and 16S rRNA gene sequence data, strain F44-8 represents a novel species in the genus , for which the name sp. nov. is proposed (type strain F44-8 =CCTCC AB 209067 =LMG 25233 =MCCC 1A02877).
