Abstract

Strain CMS 76or, an orange-pigmented bacterium, was isolated from a cyanobacterial mat sample from a pond located in McMurdo Dry Valley, Antarctica. On the basis of chemotaxonomic and phylogenetic properties, strain CMS 76or was identified as a member of the genus . It exhibited a 16S rDNA similarity of 99·8 % and DNA–DNA similarity of 71 % with (ATCC 186). Phenotypic traits confirmed that strain CMS 76or and were well differentiated. Furthermore, strain CMS 76or could be differentiated from the other reported species of , namely (ATCC 27570), (ATCC 15306), (DSM 11926) and (DSM 11025), on the basis of a number of phenotypic features. Therefore, it is proposed that strain CMS 76or (=MTCC 3702 =DSM 14382) be assigned to a novel species of the genus , as .
