Abstract

A comprehensive taxonomic re-evaluation was performed on the marine, zeaxanthin-producing bacterium formerly classified as [] sp. strain R-1512 (ATCC 21588). This strain, together with two other previously described marine isolates, [] strain R-1506 and sp. strain MBIC 3966, were found to comprise a new species of the genus . The name sp. nov. is proposed, with ATCC 21588 (=R-1512 =LMG 21293) designated as the type strain.
