Abstract

A Gram-reaction-negative, aerobic, yellowish-orange-pigmented bacterial strain, designated JC2436, was isolated from tidal-flat sediment of Oi Island in Korea. Comparative 16S rRNA gene sequence analysis indicated its close affiliation to , with 96 % sequence similarity to the type strain. Cells grew with 2–6 % NaCl and at 10–41 °C. Orange flexirubin pigments were present. The major isoprenoid quinone was MK-6, the DNA G+C content was 48.7 mol% and the predominant fatty acids (>10 %) were iso-C and iso-C 3-OH. The data obtained from this polyphasic study support the classification of this isolate within a novel species in the genus , for which the name sp. nov. is proposed. The type strain is JC2436 (=IMSNU 14137 =KACC 13727 =KCTC 22361 =JCM 15496).
