Abstract

Two Gram-negative, non-motile, non-spore-forming and moderately halophilic cocci (strains YKJ-103 and YKJ-105) were isolated from the traditional Korean fermented seafood, jeotgal. The two strains grew optimally at 25–30 °C and grew at 4 and 36 °C, but not above 37 °C. They grew in the presence of 0–10 % (w/v) NaCl with an optimum of 2–3 % (w/v) NaCl. Strains YKJ-103 and YKJ-105 were chemotaxonomically characterized by having ubiquinone-8 (Q-8) as the predominant isoprenoid quinone and C 9 as the major fatty acid. The polar lipid analysis indicated the presence of diphosphatidylglycerol, phosphatidylglycerol and phosphatidylethanolamine. The DNA G+C contents of strains YKJ-103 and YKJ-105 were 44 and 43 mol%, respectively. Strains YKJ-103 and YKJ-105 showed no difference in their 16S rDNA sequences, and their mean level of DNA–DNA relatedness was 92·3 %. Phylogenetic analysis based on 16S rDNA sequences showed that the two strains form a distinct phylogenetic lineage within the cluster comprising species. Strains YKJ-103 and YKJ-105 exhibited 16S rDNA similarities of 96·6 % with the type strain of , the closest species, and of 94·5–95·9 % with type strains of other species. On the basis of phenotypic properties, phylogenetic and genomic data, strains YKJ-103 and YKJ-105 should be placed in the genus as members of a new species, for which the name sp. nov. is proposed. The type strain of the new species is strain YKJ-103 (=KCCM 41559 =JCM 11463).
