Abstract

A Gram-negative, aerobic, non-motile, yellow-pigmented, rod-shaped bacterium (strain JS-08) isolated from seawater was subjected to a polyphasic taxonomic study. 16S rRNA gene sequence analysis indicated that strain JS-08 belongs to the genus , a member of the phylum . Its closest phylogenetic relative was JCM 7460, with which it shared 97.0 % 16S RNA gene sequence similarity. Strain JS-08 contained menaquinone-6 (MK-6) as the predominant menaquinone, and the dominant fatty acids were iso-C, iso-C 3-OH and a summed feature consisting of iso-C 2-OH and/or Cω7. The DNA G+C content of strain JS-08 was 34.2 mol%. Based on phenotypic, genotypic and phylogenetic evidence, it is suggested that strain JS-08 represents a novel speciesof the genus , for which the name sp. nov. is proposed. The type strain is JS-08 ( = KCTC 23023  = JCM 16529).
