Abstract

Two bacterial strains (KMM 3633 and KMM 3634) were isolated from marine coastal sea-ice and characterized by using phenotypic and molecular methods. The isolates were aerobic, Gram-negative, psychrophilic, halophilic and motile by means of a single polar flagellum. The DNA G+C content was 45·3–45·6 mol%. The major cellular fatty acids were C, C 9 and C 7. Comparison of almost-complete 16S rDNA sequences demonstrated that the strains were phylogenetically closely related to each other (99·5 % sequence identity), and related to species (94·4–96·4 % identity). DNA–DNA reassociation between KMM 3633 and KMM 3634 occurred at a level of 92 %. Based on phenotypic, chemotaxonomic and phylogenetic properties, the name sp. nov. is proposed for strains KMM 3633 and KMM 3634; the type strain is KMM 3633 (=JCM 11775=NRIC 523).
