Abstract

A Gram-stain-positive, rod-shaped, endospore-forming bacterium, strain CAU 9038, was isolated from a tidal-flat sediment of DaeYiJac Island, Republic of Korea, and its taxonomic position was investigated using a polyphasic approach. The cell-wall peptidoglycan contained -diaminopimelic acid. The major polar lipids were diphosphatidylglycerol and phosphatidylglycerol, the major isoprenoid quinone was MK-7 and the dominant cellular fatty acid was anteiso-C. The DNA G+C content was 51.6 mol%. 16S rRNA gene sequence analysis showed that the strain belonged to the genus , with <96.1 % sequence similarity to type strains of species with validly published names. The most closely related type strains to CAU 9038 were S3-4A (96.1 % similarity) and DSM 1355 (95.3 %). The phenotypic, chemotaxonomic and genotypic data clearly indicated that strain CAU 9038 represents a novel species of the genus , for which the name sp. nov. is proposed. The type strain is CAU 9038 (=KCTC 13717 =CCUG 59129).
