Abstract

A psychropiezophilic bacterium, strain 2825 (=LMG 21260 =JCM 11437), isolated from deep Atlantic sediments at a depth of 2770 m and a temperature of 2 °C, was found by polyphasic analysis to represent a novel species of the genus , sp. nov. It is a strict psychrophile and a moderate piezophile, whose degree of piezophily is increased markedly when the temperature is raised to 10 °C. The piezophily of is intermediate between that of the type species, , which is not piezophilic, and that of , which is an obligate piezophile.
